What are your favorite things to do in your job? What work excites you the most?
I love the variety of work I get to tackle: complex technical problems, strategic advising, working with both custom development and existing platforms, and collaborating with clients, third parties and our teams. The icing on the cake? All our work is in service of great organizations.
What's your favorite nonprofit or cause?
I’m the most passionate about social-justice work, which is why I’m excited to work with organizations like the ACLU (fighting for our civil liberties) and UNICEF (helping to make the world a more equitable place). I’m also very interested in politics and nonprofit theater.
What's your favorite animal?
What's an interesting random fact or story about you?
I moved from Seattle back to New York partially because of the superior quality of the Tostitos. I'm an enthusiast of Tostitos and Diet Coke, especially on the weekends.
What are your pet peeves?
Poor communication, bad grammar, and people who walk slowly.
