Tristan is an internationally recognized speaker on LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion. She is so passionate about diversity and representation that she has stepped away from her 22 years practicing law and started her own speaking and consulting firm – Metaclusive, LLC. The term “metaclusive” means a sense of belonging that transcends diversity and inclusion where all are represented, valued, and accepted. As the definition implies, Metaclusive, LLC focuses on all types of diversity, from the most commonly thought of race and gender, to the often forgotten disability, military service, and communication style. Tristan has a Bachelor of Arts in Theater from the University of California, San Diego and went to California Western School of Law to become an entertainment lawyer. She began her career as a prosecutor for the San Diego City Attorney and went on to practice entertainment law for the Screen Actors Guild (now, SAG-AFTRA) in Los Angeles. After advising SAG-AFTRA in video game contract negotiations, she joined Sega of America in San Francisco, where she oversaw Sega’s legal needs for North America. She left Sega to join Sony Electronics in San Diego, where she helped establish the digital cinema business worldwide, and advised the component sales divisions in Silicon Valley, Novi, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo on high tech licensing and sales.
