PERSONAL

My professional and personal interests coalesce around fighting for justice and equity for oppressed and marginalized identities. I also like reading fantasy and equity-centered nonfiction, cooking, traveling, learning about new cultures and languages, falling down research rabbit-holes, and helping others achieve their personal and professional goals. I love data and research, but also feelings and humanity. I am married to an amazing woman who is also my career coach, web designer, travel buddy, learning partner, and the best cheerleader anyone could ask for. I'm from Portland, Oregon and recently relocated to Washington, DC. I am nonbinary and use they/them or she/her pronouns.
