An overview of the projects and companies I am grateful to have been involved with over the past years.

Many outlets provide performing arts training, but Broadway Dreams, as a mission-driven 501(c)3 nonprofit with demonstrated reach and credibility in the Broadway and Hollywood communities, is committed to investing in the next generation of artists regardless of background or income.

Co-creator, 2023 - present
My sister and I started this initiative with the hope of raising awareness on the important topic of cyberbullying. With the rapid rise of social media, it's a fast-developing issue that many of us adults are still learning how to navigate. Unlike the two of us, who grew with social media, children nowadays know no different.
Our hope is to raise awareness on the lasting effects of cyberbullying and how we can be better equipped to support young people through the digital landscape; by highlighting available resources and promoting positivity on our social channels. Let's make the internet a safer space for our pre-teens and young adults.
Head of Brand & Communications, 2020 - 2023
Utilising a vast combination of technology-based methodologies, Health Optimizing aims to find and solve health challenges from the root causes. I am so proud to have been part of this organisation on a mission to build the future of health. I'm excited to see how the company continues to develop, this time as a user and shareholder. Grateful to all of my colleagues for making this such a memorable and meaningful chapter in my life.
