Hello, here's a bit about me:

Born, raised, and rooted in New York City, I attended The Bronx High School of Science and went on to get my B.A. from The New School. My career path has been anything but traditional, and I consider the breadth of my experiences to be one of my greatest assets.

I've worked in film, book publishing, and tech, but my true passion is helping people build their careers, which I have been doing for the past 7 years with FindSpark–a community I helped build from the ground up–dedicated to providing young creatives with the tools and resources needed for career success. 

I launched FindSpark's curated job board featuring the best creative internships and entry-level positions in New York City, now the #1 source of traffic for FindSpark.com. I've led workshops on career-related topics including résumé & cover letter writing, LinkedIn, personal branding, and digital presence for FindSpark, the JCC Manhattan, and Baruch College.

I completed my Master's Degree in Higher Education Administration from Baruch College at the end of Summer 2017 and recently began working in Graduate Career Services at the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs - Baruch College. My goal is to support students and alumni through every stage of their careers, as they evaluate professional goals, develop a plan, and pursue opportunities.
