Non-Profit Founder, Graphic Desing Consultant, Beekeeper, Vagabond and Traveler
"All experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untraveled world, whose margin fades forever and forever when I move."
I'm a design thinker who only relatively recently discovered that design thinking is an established idea. I thought I was alone! I'm a social media marketing and graphic design consultant, beekeeper & hive rescuer, avid traveler (and eater), and I'm currently in the process of starting my own non-profit, an organization called Imagine More. We are dedicated to environmental education, youth empowerment, and sustainability, largely in our own community of San Diego but open to all possibilities! We're just in our beginning stages - currently we're under review for 501(c)3 status - but we're excited to get started!
We're currently working on several projects, including a project bringing entomologists at UCSD together with local beekeepers in the San Diego Beekeeping Society to generate a mutually beneficial study; a project aiding American veterinary researchers to develop curricula for a veterinary school in Rwanda; and a project assisting Stockholm University researchers, local officials in Cape Town, South Africa, and Cape Town high school students to develop a student-led, community-driven design project in support of the World Design Capital title that Cape Town is set to hold in 2014.
