PROFILE SUMMARY


I am a 2021 magna cum laude graduate of Wellesley College with an Honors degree in Media Arts and Computer Sciences. I have experience as a freelance video producer, social media manager, animation instructor, and video game researcher. Additionally, I worked for two years in residential life at Wellesley College, first as a Resident Assistant and the following year as a House President, which gave me hands-on management and community development experience. At Wellesley, I was also the team captain of the varsity swimming and diving team for two years.
