California State Parks
State Park Interpreter I
North Coast Redwoods District (635)
A lifelong resident of Northern California, I attended Humboldt State University and received a degree in Natural Resources Planning and Interpretation. While still in college I got my first gig at State Parks as a seasonal Park Aid Interpreter at Hendy Woods. After graduating, I served in the AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Program and as a Scientific Aid with California Fish and Wildlife. I returned to State Parks six years ago as a presenter for the Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students (PORTS) Program.

My primary interest is the public and how people relate to and engage with their environment. I enjoy exploring new ways to reach out across audiences whether through visual media, illustrations, music, or storytelling. I am a self-taught musician, artist and aspiring videographer. My goal has always been to direct these hobbies in service of connecting people to the places they inhabit.
