Hello! My name is Liz. I'm from Colorado, I lived in Japan for 1 year, and I've lived in the Bay Area since 2009. I enjoy its diversity and mix of urban and natural landscapes.
I am enthusiastic about people, art, writing, learning, nature, mindfulness, organizing, and being active. My multi-disciplinary background has given me focus, flexibility, and ambitious work habits, regardless of the project or the industry.
Let's get coffee together! I'd love to hear your story.
My Modus Operandi: “To leave a place or situation better than I found it!”
Fun facts about me: Besides the main experiences found described on this website, I have also been a choreographer and performer, a trampoline park safety guide, and an expert gift wrapper. I love coffee, comics, the epic outdoors, science fiction, and traveling.
