Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I moved to the Nordics two years ago to get out of my comfort zone and embrace newness. I work to build & connect entrepreneurial ecosystems in Lappeenranta, Helsinki, & the Bay Area.
In my free time, I’m a life long swimmer and have taken up ice swimming as a daily ritual in the winters here in Finland. This practice helped create community, routine, and clarity in daily life. The ritual of doing something difficult or uncomfortable daily is now something I strive to do.
