AUTHENTICITY is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves to be seen. -Brene Brown

Hello. I design websites, help non-profits and businesses thrive, and am fascinated with technology and design. I love my garden, natural spaces, baking, do-it-yourself projects, and really good shoes.

I recently worked for ECOSLO, a local non-profit concerned with creating and supporting a healthy, natural environment in San Luis Obispo County. I am the Webmaster and Publicity contact for the SLO chapter of the California Native Plant Society. And at YoungDigital, I build, host, and manage websites for local, national, and international clients.
