I serve as the Director of Student Activities

How long have you worked here?
I've been at Brandeis for 5 months.

What do you like to do outside of work?
When I'm not working I like to do fun, creative things. Most of my down time I'm creating projects in graphic design for myself and clients — I'm steadily trying to build an empire! I also enjoy bike riding.

Please share interesting facts about yourself that others don't know?
My partner and I were on the TV Show, Flea Market Flip in 2017. Also, this year I participated in the California AIDS Life Cycle to raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness and education. Another interesting fact is that I have a Bachelor's degree in Art Education and taught high school art.
