I’m passionate about environmental advocacy and public service. Currently I’m a JD candidate at University of California, Davis School of Law.
I also enjoy exploring the nexus between open data and creative technologies with environmental issues and science.
- Legal Intern, Center for Biological Diversity (Fall 2015) and California Coastal Commission (Summer 2015).
- Co-founder, Nerds for Nature. We’re a Bay Area-based group of environmentalists, technologists, designers, and advocates who think that by bringing together those both on the “nerds” and the “nature” sides, a lot of new, creative ways will emerge to help us better protect, understand, and defend the natural world. @nerds4nature on Twitter.
- Co-facilitator and Student, Environmental Forum of Marin‘s Master Class 40. The Master Class teaches students the science, policy, and strategies for effective advocacy needed to act on behalf of environmental issues and influence decision making. I assisted the Director and completed the Master Class.
- Creator, “Bay Area: What Could Have Been.” Inspired by the Forum’s founder Dr. Marty Griffin’s successful action to stave off the “Lost Angeles-ization of the Bay Area,” I envisioned and produced a an online exhibit to tell the story of what could have been for the Bay Area. http://www.whatmighthavebeen.org/
- Grant Writing and Fundraising Consulting: From 2010-2014 I helped environmental and social justice nonprofits develop funding strategies and translate their complex legal and scientific programs into compelling grant proposals. Please see my clients list.
