I'm a recent graduate of The Evergreen State College where I studied documentary media and gender studies, culminating in the creation of A Problem Like Maria, a documentary film featuring the stories of religious sisters (nuns) and their struggles for gender equality within the Catholic Church. As a 2007 Young People For Fellow, I coordinated a documentary photography and audio exhibit on the lives of families facing welfare cuts in Washington state. I also spent a summer doing human rights documentation work in Guatemala, organized a Take Back the Night rally and currently serves on Amnesty International's Women's Human Rights Steering Committee.
After spending the last year in Seattle working on the community outreach campaign for the documentary film Inlaws & Outlaws, I am thrilled to continue combining my passions for media and social change through my work as a community organizer at The Center for Digital Storytelling.
In my spare time, I can be found freelance writing for various publications, taking photographs of gentrifying neighborhoods, and/or making mix CDs for every imaginable situation.
