About Jean

My goal is to tell riveting and socially-relevant stories that pack a powerful punch.


PERSONAL TRIVIA:

_ I love ALL forms of art and expression.

_ As a precocious child and native New Yorker, I witnessed and participated in, the birth of the hip-hop movement.

_ While at Hunter College (CUNY), I took classes in Theater Arts, Dance, and Film, including the fabled course that introduced students to the master of the craft himself - Orson Welles.

_ Out of necessity, I moved from NYC to CA at 21, in my graduating semester, with $200 to my name.

_ While at SJSU, I took courses in both Journalism and Advertising - torn between Creative Writing and Investigative Reporting.

_ I somehow wound up at APPLE just in time to witness the THINK DIFFERENT and REBIRTH OF THE COOL campaigns.

_ An avid researcher, I just may hold the Evernote record - at 46K+ notes.

Unique traits: Born & Raised in NYC -- SF Bay Area / Silicon Valley resident -- Multicultural -- Multilingual -- Devout researcher of history's mysteries and esoteric knowledge -- Nature Enthusiast -- Wanderluster -- Free-thinking, mind-speaking, lover of laughter and life...and accidental person of faith.
