What I do best.

I'm deeply motivated by social, racial, and environmental justice (and where they intersect).


My strengths lie in helping organizations stabilize and strengthen the business side of things, and so I try to do my part by prioritizing partnerships with nonprofit and other mission-focused organizations.

I'm also fascinated and energized by the idea of discovering and eradicating white dominant culture in financial, HR, and other operational policies.


I'm very interested in exploring where white supremacy shows up in seemingly innocuous places and then coming up with creative (and still legally-compliant) ways of combating it.
