Magic. Transformation. Shenanigans.
Who is 

I call myself a culture alchemist because I am a translator and facilitator of tectonic patterns of transformation. In other words:

I teach people how to embrace and navigate change during times of disruptive transition. 

I have been an entrepreneur and edge walker since birth. Driven to decode complexity, I have spent the past decade of my career learning how to design human-centered systems and educational pathways that empower people with the knowledge and tools of the future.

Professional Background

Like many visionaries, my path has been anything but linear. Working inter-dimensionally across industries has provided me with a powerful transformational toolkit and deep exposure to a diversity of people, organizations, cultures, and game-changing ideas.  


My professional path started in writing and publishing, when I launched Whole Beast Rag (RIP), an online magazine dedicated to publishing provocative ideas that push culture forward.


As the Creative Director of a digital platform, my work was centered on design systems and digital media. I soon pivoted into User Experience Design as a consultant, where I worked with enterprise companies to simplify, streamline, and update massive legacy systems.


Once burned out on the tech scene, I transitioned into tech education: teaching world-changing design concepts, frameworks, and methodologies to students of all ages. 

While teaching design, I realized that what I was truly educating my students on was processes of change management - AKA constant innovation. It was around this time that my spiritual awakening happened, changing everything*.
