I'm a dedicated, creative entrepreneur. I love to use my analytical thinking, partnership expertise, communication skills, and strategic leadership to empower online communities and organizations.
I'm an open knowledge champion. I believe information should be widely, freely available to help people make informed decisions about their lives while improving scholarship and research literacy.
I'm a maker for social impact. I'm passionate about projects and tools that synthesize challenging ideas and offer novel benefits to people in a way that is simple, clever, and effective.
I'm an advocate for mental health. I care deeply about reducing stigma and increasing paths for treatment and recovery in both people and in society.
I'm an ally. Through my actions, I seek to recognize and repair historical and present injustices that have kept marginalized people silenced, oppressed, and invisible.
