artist, designer, strategist for social good


I am an artist, designer and strategist focused on placemaking/placekeeping for social good. I am also the founder of cocktails+craft, a creative workshop focused on community building. 

My mission is to inspire creativity, critical thinking and cultural understanding. I love to design experiences that enlighten the soul and deepen human connection. 

My work is interdisciplinary and I have experience in fashion design, printmaking, photography, fiber arts, crafts, teaching, creative direction, event planning, business development, branding, and marketing. 

This blog is about my daily life, creative projects and travels. I am based in Washington, DC.
