With a double major in film and comparative literature from the University of Pennsylvania, I hold a keen interest in rhetoric, both visual and verbal, as well as literary and film theory. Having worked in film and video game production, academic publishing, and law, I am intimately familiar with both the theoretical and practical applications of the written word. My love of the written word extends beyond English and flows into Spanish and Japanese, languages in which I am proficient. In an effort to tell the stories that need an extra push to be told, I have set my sights on nonprofits and interactive storytelling.
