in good company
I had the pleasure of writing two profile stories for the (Fear)less Issue of Good Company: Radical Monarchs, an Oakland-based organization for girls of color, and Pipeline Angels, founded by Natalia Oberti Noguera, which creates capital for women and non-binary femme social entrepreneurs.
“Being a leader means bringing people into the room and bringing more voices to the table.”
— NATALIA OBERTI NOGUERA, CEO & FOUNDER, PIPELINE ANGELS

Farming is normally a family tradition. But with the buy-local movement comes a new generation farmers who didn’t grow up on farms. “From the Ground Up” features three California growers—Kristyn Leach of Namu Farms, Kenny Likitprakong of Hobo Wines, and Daniele Strawn of Jolee Blooms—who went from novice to in-the-know, creating farms on their own terms.

MODERN LUXURY Silicon Valley
For the July 2018 issue of Modern Luxury Silicon Valley, I worked with EIC Anh-Minh Le to create the chalkboard set for the cover story on Robyn Sue Fisher, founder of Smitten Ice Cream. Doodling a whole wall science-y diagrams was both fun and therapeutic.
