Collector of Stories

In 2016, in response to the divisive rhetorical towards our immigrant communities, I launched Immigrant Run Eateries in Nashville, TN. Immigrant Run Eateries is a tool to help support and celebrate the diverse community in Nashville, one bite at a time. IRE allowed me to do what I love to do: speak to strangers and eat great food.

Role:

  • Creator + voice behind the project

  • Story collector + content creator

  • Website + social media image design




Digital Content Creator

HP, Inc. has an incredibly interesting history of innovation. HP needed a centralized location for it’s past, present, and future innovation + news stories. Thus, the creation of HP Garage. As the lead designer + producer for the project, I worked with HP’s internal communications team + digital agency to build and design the HP Garage.
