I’m a creative leader with a strong vision for a more just society. Before I completed my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees I spent about 15+ years traveling as a waiter, bartender and manager in the restaurant industry, and also taught in several early childhood education settings. I’ve lived in 9 cities so far across the United States, and carry a unique perspective of urban areas across the nation.

Some fun facts about me include:
1. I have a pet bunny named Bowie.
2. When I was 11 years old, I skipped school to attend my first anti-racism rally with friends.
3. My wife and I eloped 6 months after we met, and yes, we are still happy we did it. 🙂
