About Me

Having grown up in a multi-cultural family, I believe that a certain kind of magic occurs when people of different backgrounds come together to share their stories, ideas, and opinions - they see various perspectives and enjoy deeper, more robust experiences. 

 

My passion for bringing diverse groups of people together has led me to build companies and communities with the shared mission of supporting, promoting, and connecting people to the resources, opportunities, and networks that can help them reach their personal or professional goals. 

 

When I’m not coworking or community building; I travel, think, and talk with people about life, purpose, and what they love.

 

Through my observations and conversations, I learn about the world.
