I am seeking the opportunity to work with a socially responsible organization (small business, non-profit, NGO, or traditional business). By socially responsible, I mean that the organization has a true passion for creating sustainable, social change. This social change shouldn’t be a byproduct, but rather a conscious, fundamental effort. The fields I find most appealing involve literacy, cultural education, economic development, globalization, sustainable energy, and equality. I am willing to work on a full-time, part-time, or consulting basis.



I will work anywhere near an airport with a direct flight to Seattle, WA. Top choices include Seattle, WA; Denver, CO; San Francisco, CA; Austin, TX, and Washington D.C., or Anchorage, Alaska. Depending on your needs, I can also work remotely. Beginning in September, I will be attending the MBA in Sustainability program at Bainbridge Graduate Institute. This hybrid program requires that I physically be in Seattle four days per month.


What do I bring to the table?

My skills include the ability to break complex problems down into smaller pieces, analyze issues from various perspectives, and build sustainable organizational, business, marketing, communications, and media systems. I thrive in an environment where people have a vested interest in the success of each other and work together to accomplish an end goal. I have experience writing proposals, developing and delivering presentations, conducting research, and designing marketing and communications strategies.


What are my interests?

I am interested in how our interactions with people and the environment affect us on a global scale. I enjoy learning how innovative businesses and organizations are working to identify and alleviate problems. I also love basketball, traveling, and technology.


What have I done?

I am currently working on Menrva Labs, a project I started to promote social change by increasing social consciousness. I am interviewing people others and I have found innovative, inspiring, and interesting; and providing them with a forum to share their stories. The website will also include news, business tips, trainings, commentary on advertisements, and thought-provoking questions. Community events will include art exhibitions, community discussions, etc.

Besides Menrva Labs, I sit on the board of the American Marketing Association (San Antonio Chapter) as the vice president of collegiate relations, work with Media Justice League to teach media literacy, and provide pro bono consulting work with Literacy San Antonio (SA Reads) to help create a culture of literacy in San Antonio and surrounding areas.

Prior to moving to San Antonio, I worked in Santiago, Chile at Albagli Zaliasnik & Cia, where I developed their global marketing strategy and Austin, where I did financial advising for two years.
