loha! I'm Evelyn — an island-born, city girl who thrives at the intersection of lifelong learning, critical media literacy, and boba runs. Un-classically trained (YouTube), I dabble in guitar, ukulele, and piano. I also play tennis for fun and sing karaoke for sport. When I'm not working on ways to help Pinterest grow internationally, you can find me shooting wedding/engagement/creative project videos/photos with Xpretion Media, performing at a local open mic, or traveling for the weekend.
