Follow the Fear. Find the Fun.

A long-time explorer and follower of my fears, I’ve learned to be comfortable in the uncomfortable. Over the past 15 years, I've taught and traveled in Asia and Europe, earned a Master’s degree in International Relations, fundraised for global human rights defenders in Washington, DC and New York, and now help people thrive through experiential learning.

At Hyper Island and in my side hustle - creating improvisation workshops for people, teams and organizations to flex their creative muscles - I help people be strong creative leaders with whatever resources they have available - essentially to improvise.

I'm an experienced improv comedy and storytelling performer and the creator, writer, and podcast producer and host for my blog, 100 First Dates, about dating and relationships.
