Social Media & Community Manager

Past Employers

about me

I’m a California native turned North Carolina resident, trading my life in Silicon Valley for a house in the woods. Oh, and a really cute dog, too!

My 15+ year career in the games industry spans online and print journalism, development, community management, and social media. I’ve built my reputation on being a champion of fairness and inclusivity, and for always being on the cutting edge of emerging technology from live streaming to the blockchain.

Check out my experience below, and if you’re interested in having a chat, let’s do it! Thanks!
