Since the launch of Career Survival Guide, organizations and have invited me to speak to employees about career development, D&I (diversity and inclusion), and my experiences in the media industry. I am open to participating in conferences, panels, and virtual events. If you're reaching out on behalf of a professional organization or university group, please email with "Speaker Request" in the subject line.

Event emceeing & on-camera hosting

I currently anchor daily broadcast segments on KCTS (Seattle's PBS station), and I have also emceed several Seattle-area events since 2013. These include cultural events, pageants, and formal ceremonies. I have 9 years of on-camera experience, ranging from public access television to YouTube shows. As a journalist, I worked full-time as a tech reporter (2018-2019) and legislative reporter (2017).


Consulting for organizations

Diversity in decision-making is important. That's why I offer consulting to organizations interested in getting a second opinion on their content strategy, especially for content geared towards millennial audiences and folks of underrepresented backgrounds. I'll give you my perspective as a millennial and as a video producer committed to diversity & inclusion.


I have a deep understanding of digital content from both the production and distribution sides.  As a journalist, I created daily videos as a one-woman band (shooting footage, conducting interviews, writing scripts, reporting on-camera, and editing videos myself). Without the help of a video production crew or designated social media team, I helped grow YouTube subscriptions 41% for a Seattle-area tech news company in only 10 months. If you need help growing your digital presence, let's chat.

Giving back is important to me, and I do a limited number of pro bono events and projects every year. If you're a non-profit or small organization interested in my services, please email me with "Volunteer Request" in the subject line, and I'll see what I can do!
