At the age of 13, I founded Citizens Lobbying for Animals in Zoos, which garnered national attention. I was recognized as "One of Twenty Teens Who Will Change the World" by Teen People Magazine and featured in renowned outlets such as National Geographic, Animal Planet, NBC, and CBS for my advocacy on behalf of Brutus and Ursula, two black bears suffering in deplorable conditions at a California zoo.

In June 2021, my young adult memoir hit the shelves, the culmination of a decade-long writing journey aimed at shedding light on the challenges faced by zoo animals and empowering young people to stand up for their rights, the rights of animals, and their fellow humans.

As a director and producer, I have traversed the globe and crisscrossed continents, helming television shows, documentaries, and spearheading content strategies for biggest online education platforms.

After a surprise layoff in 2023, I set out to make a longtime dream come true by launching The Most -- A podcast, a homemade kids' talk show, and a collection of creative ideas for families on Substack.

I was raised in Sacramento and currently reside in San Francisco with my family, including my son Noah, daughter Uma, and my wife Bridget, as we embrace our shared queer identity. I earned a BA in Communications, Media Arts, and Production from the University of Technology, Sydney.
