<Profile Transmission>
I’m a passionate storyteller with experience in an eclectic array of media, and a strong history of logistic management. With years of experience designing stories through digital media, live events, theme park hosting, and role play design. I am an artist known for bringing a thoughtful design lens to everything I do. If you’re looking for someone that can fabricate a unique video game controller but also has enough admin experience that she gets excited when a complicated spreadsheet data merges just right, you’ve found her.

You know what aye think? Bubbles are evolutionary. They kill excess, lean out the heard, but they are never completely destroyed. They just come back in different forms and when they burst they give light to a new day, always creating change. Ewe wanna know what the mother of all bubbles was? Us. The human race. Scientists call it the Cambrian Explosion, from the Cambrian fauna.
