About My Business:

 

Thank you for finding me! I’ve managed and worked with dozens of local, state, and national campaigns, non-profit organizations, and small businesses on grassroots mobilization, marketing, strategic planning, and communications. I spent my time in college at American University off-campus working in the United States Congress on policy-related projects, and on-campus with University’s School of Public Affairs Leadership Program, now a multi-disciplinary 4-year study renowned for it’s experiential programming. Upon leaving college I delved head-first into building large-scale grassroots campaigns and field organizations to deliver the message of democratic candidates and campaigns, primarily across the midwest including Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, Iowa, Virginia, and Louisiana. It was with this knowledge and experience of grassroots mobilization and communications that I translated these efforts into non-profit and small business marketing, employing winning tactics and strategies across industry-specific lines. I enjoy and excel in empowering activists to succeed in creating change in their communities and across the country, as well as managing emerging leaders within organizations of all sizes and missions. I've worked with organizations to refine their media outreach and communications strategies, as well as funding and promoting legislative advocacy and organizing. I value public service and volunteerism, and spend a great deal of time volunteering and working with regional HIV/AIDS service organizations, including ActionAIDS and MANNA, an organization dedicated to providing meals to those afflicted by HIV. I serve on several boards, including SpiralQ, a community-based arts organization with roots in the ACT UP protests from the 1980s and 90s. I am a member of Christ Church Philadelphia, and active in their gay and lesbian and young adult fellowships. I am an organizer, lobbyist, advocate, and rabble-rouser– all for ideas and goals that broaden basic fairness and equality for all people– with a deep interest in marrying decades old ideas of community organizing and grassroots mobilization with the power and energy of new social media.
