San Francisco - Posted 1/20/2022

I used to go to the fair every summer with my family. There were animals, games, and incredible acts like plate spinning and stilt-walking. I was fascinated by the physical manifestation of multi-tasking and discovered my life's calling. After ruining three cantaloupes in a juggling attempt, I decided to pursue my passion of organizing chaos in the admin field.
