I am a city-dwelling marketing professional in Richmond, VA ̌
I have a habit of quantifying myself, whether it be through DNA, emotional quotient score, my strengths, my life values, you name it. I like understanding data this way to build self awareness and seek opportunities I had not seen. It is a great way to be objective and be aware of what I am blind to. While data gives some amount of context no amount of data could tell a full story. I practice this mentality of being an avid trespasser into communities in order to discover things and experiences I have never been exposed to, like when I found myself on a caving trip and experienced a new kind of darkness, or in a drawing class that taught how to see things differently, or even something as simple as listening to a podcast on a subject far outside my experience. This wayfinding has allowed me to work in a variety of positions such as conducting an independent study on political messaging in the 2016 election, to working at a boutique hotel and having my ideas adapted into the company culture, and curating a department wide web training for VCU’s Residential Life & Housing Department. While I find myself in many different fields I realize that each experience is apt in informing my next.
