My name is Anela and I am a full-time GIS Analyst who is also passionate about photography and floristry. My GIS work centers sustainability and cartography, while my photography centers beauty and minimalism. I also make and sell floral wreaths every holiday season as a nod to my past working on a flower farm throughout grad school.
The youngest of five siblings, I am the first American citizen by birth in my family. Resilience fostered by my family and queer identity drive the majority of my work.
