About Me

For as long as I can remember, I've been a storyteller. Maybe it's because I'm lousy with equations. Or maybe, it's because I have always loved the exercise of language, of finding stories that reflect the reality of people with all different backgrounds and exploring the complexity of the human condition, where empathy and compassion are key to creating substantial change.

 

Either way, I am eager to continue to learn, write, and grow, wherever I may be.
