    Introduction

    Welcome to my website. In 2011, I started studying website design and production. at Berkeley City College. Since then I have completed the websites (WordPress and HTML/CSS) listed below. Please click on a link to visit the website.

    Working on websites is a natural progression because I am very interested in communication and photography. For over 18 years, I was an Event Manager for several prestigious nonprofit organizations. Many of my undergrad and graduate education projects focused on photography.

    Please read more about my background in my resume that is listed below.

    My professional experience at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Mills College included all aspects of planning, managing and evaluating large events and residential conferences. These positions required an extremely high level of attention to detail in order to plan, manage, and implement all logistical details, budgets, and marketing strategies (printed pieces and electronic) for these large events.
