The questions "where are you from?" and "what do you do"? have always been tricky for me to answer.
Born in California, but raised in Thailand, I am very much the product of an international upbringing.
As the daughter of two international school teachers, I have lived and worked all over the world - from Bangkok to London to Kathmandu to San Francisco to Amsterdam and beyond.
Yet, I don't define myself by where I was born, what job I'm working or where I'm living (currently south of Spain).
What defines me is my passion for using creativity, emotional intelligence and empathy as a tool for connection, service and growth.
During my years working in mission driven social entrepreneurship and high tech in San Francisco's Silicon Valley, I've developed an array of skills focused on creating engaging and resonate experiences to drive business growth.
While I have worked with some of the most well-known and successful companies in the world, I knew my mission was to offer creative and practical support to people who were committed to being of authentic service to others and bringing wisdom and beauty to the world.
