I'm equal parts thinker and do-er, and have worked on launching and managing specific partnerships and initiatives for good as well as research and strategy for overarching impact programs.
My approach to change-making is grounded in pragmatic idealism: While I have firmly-held ideas about what the world should look like, I work in the realm of what's possible—in the near-term and given any resource or cultural constraints.
Here are a few examples of projects I am excited to have contributed to:
UpEffect Impact Assesments, reports evaluating achieved impact (and potential for future impact) for social enterprises that have raised money via the UpEffect crowdfunding and support platform.
North Carolina Traffic Stop Research, a statistical research project focused on disparities in how racial groups are treated by the police that prompted a wave of reforms across the state of North Carolina (Press: The New York Times (1) (2); Book: Suspect Citizens)
