“I’m building innovative solutions that give the power back to the people.”
Everything I have ever built, led, or changed was an opportunity for me to pay it forward for everyone after me. I wasn’t born into money, legacy money, or even the right zip code for decent public school education. As a bi-racial, bi-sexual, 1st generation college student who grew up in the Washington D.C. are for the majority of my childhood, I saw myself in the people who were often being left out of the conversation.
As I climbed the corporate ladder in my career, I found that organizations were leaving out a large portion of the population in the way they built new products and services.
Whether it was women, minorities, low-income households, not college-educated, and even LGBTQ communities, I constantly found myself struggling with the idea that 'what we were doing right' was enough.
When you are in your creative zone, absolute magic happens. Your ability to see and create full programs from a mess of scrambled ideas is amazing to watch.
