CV

Completing my second Masters degree, I will receive my MS in Integrated Design, Technology, and Business from University of Southern California's Iovine Young Academy in 2019, a school created by Dr. Dre & Jimmy Iovine for disruptors, creators, and innovators. Graduating in 2013 from USC's Rossier School of Education, I received my first Masters, an MAT in Education concentrated in urban school systems. I additionally hold a BA in Sociology from Arizona State University's School of Human Evolution and Social Change (2011) and studied abroad in Spain for one year to learn Spanish.

As a film, photography, and ARVRMR (Augmented/Virtual/Mixed Reality) artist, I am currently a Collective Safety Fellow at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA, where I work on a team of creative change makers to investigate our role in the design of a more equitable and socially just society. My artistic, academic, and business work lies in socio-cultural analysis that intersects design and equity. My Diversity and Inclusion skills are rooted in the legacy of my great, great uncle Jackie Robinson, as I aspire to utilize the tools of tomorrow to drive his example of inclusion forward today.

My work has been featured in HuffingtonPost.com, Blavity.com, Revolt.TV, and more. I also hold the good fortune to have produced projects for and with notable change makers such as Harry Belafonte, Cornel West, Van Jones, Emory Douglas, Alicia Garza, and the courageous Mothers of the Movement who have lost children to state violence.
