Greetings and thanks for visiting my website! Here’s a little bit about me:

I used to work with linguistically diverse communities in language and literacy development. During home visits and one-on-one time with students, I learned a lot about their lives and how this informed their ability to learn anything academic. I wanted so much to share their stories with the public and have their testimonies inform policy. Well, I eventually found my place in radio journalism; the perfect medium for storytelling.

Currently, I am the host and producer of Intersections Radio (currently on hiatus due to my own babes in the time of corona) which also airs locally on KBOO Community Radio and XRAY.FM. I am also honored to be one of the producers for the Disability Visibility Project podcast hosted by the brilliant Alice Wong. Previously, I spent five years with the APA Compass collective and I used to anchor the Evening News on KBOO 90.7 FM. In 2016, I was a New Voices Scholar with the Association of Independents in Radio (AIR).

When I’m not working on a great interview, I’m a Sign Language Interpreter. This is an awesome and challenging gig.

Oh and I’m also a giant music nerd and I’m learning singing, ukulele, and guitar.

love my job(s).

Stay tuned while I add more.
