EXPERTISE

Challenging status-quo with innovation & rebellious creativity.
Athlete

I have been an athlete most of my life, playing almost every recreational sport under the sun. Early athletic conditioning no doubt encouraged my type 2 challenge obsession. Mountaineering adventure sports don't have a sideline when you do it for you. I enjoy the physical and mental endurance challenge that grows me as a person each time in the alpine.

Creative

Creative by day (and night), content creation is what I do. Words, photos, videos, art, adventures. Mountaineering relates to the creative landscape in its challenges and elitism females face in largely male creative spaces, similar to female guides in AMGA/IFMGA. I am choosing to participate in the democratization of design, rather than be replaced by it. Change is good.

Definately Different

I'm a creative storyteller, alpinist and mountaineer navigating a new direction with the belief I can make a positive impact through my passions. My difference and story bring value to my work. I hope to inspire other RAD women to lead their own unique paths too, wherever that may lead. Creating my own content, defining my narrative, living my own adventure.
