I work with people and platforms that elevate and transform culture.

Combining passion and purpose

I work at the intersection of media, culture, and social impact to untangle complex problems and build strong brands and partnerships that help people see themselves reflected in the products they use and in the content they consume.

The best thing my mother told me was that she was going to always let me voice my opinion. While that might have made my teenage years hell for her, she gave me the best gift a mother could give: a voice.

I believe effective communicators are storytellers that know the power of words and their ability to bring together people and ideas on any platform.

Over the last decade, I've worked with socially conscious brands to leverage our collective wisdom and voices to develop strategic, actionable and engaging ways to build and maximize our message and impact online and IRL.

I've worked with several organizations to address the following issues:

*Expanding museums and art organizations beyond their walls onto digital platforms and through community partnerships

*Building multichannel digital fundraising strategies for nonprofit organizations

*Working with policy organizations that seek to liberate marginalized communities

*Ensuring gender equity for women leaders and future generations

*LGBTQ+ equity (especially LGBTQ youth of color and LGBTQ senior care)

*Building robust online communities for national and local nonprofit organizations

*Funding art and history programs

My passion is working with people, products & platforms that center BIPOC communities and leverage our history to inform our present.
