I'm creative and business-minded and have lots of stories to tell! From the children's department at Chronicle Books, to my own graphic design studio, to co-founder/designer/Director of Marketing and Communications for the Kimochis brand, my background is filled with the world of publishing, design, and startups. I love what Reedsy has to offer and can't wait to dive in!
