I'm a Detroit-based entrepreneur, tech ecosystem builder, and community organizer. A lifelong Michigander, I grew up in West Bloomfield, MI, graduated from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and have lived in Detroit since 2012. As Partnership Manager for Altimetrik, a global software services firm headquartered in Michigan, I manage a collaborative hub for software engineers in downtown Detroit. Outside of work, I produce and/or host a number of recurring community projects, including The Returning Citizen podcast, a positive storytelling platform for the formerly incarcerated; the Coalition Series, a pop-up dinner experience that connects outstanding Black and Jewish Detroiters over delicious food; and workshops encouraging productively uncomfortable conversations within the Metro-Detroit community.
