Hi, there. Thanks for visiting.

 

I'm an AmeriCorps and JET Program alumnus with six years of experience in education, government, and communications.

  

My passion is helping to build healthy, resilient, localized communities. I love thinking about place-based identities as a Japanese Jewish American.

As of 2020, I'm researching, imagining, and documenting public spaces online and offline.
