I’ve been a consultant, an advocate, and an activist. At the heart of my work is a desire to provide people with the tools, the training, and the support they need in order to make meaningful changes in their local community.
While I think about my work in a broader social justice context, most of what I’ve done revolves around three core areas: HIV/AIDS Advocacy, LGBT Equality, and Progressive Politics.
I currently serve as the Executive Director of the DC Center for the LGBT Community. My opinions as expressed on this website however, are my own. If you would like to learn more. I encourage you to visit my linkedin.com profile.
