I am a social entrepreneur living in New York City with a background in inbound marketing, anthropology, and sustainable international development. I have a passion for ideas that utilize technology to forge previously impossible connections resulting in positive social change. I also love working for start-ups capable of bring great (and often simple) ideas to fruition.

Currently:

On the side:

  • I work with Bridges to Community, a community development non-profit that organizes and facilitates international cross-cultural service trips for volunteers to live and work in materially poor communities. With Bridges, I’ve lead a variety of service-learning trips to Nicaragua, advised on their organizational social media strategy, and produced a series of fundraising videos. 

Previously, I’ve been a part of a number of startups:

  • I co-founded Zimride (now known as Lyft) a friendly, safe, and affordable transportation option.
  • I was a Project Manager and Technology Adviser at JustMeans, a social platform that provides a forum for companies and individuals to engage in initiatives with respect to social and environmental responsibility.
  • I co-founded La Piña Blanca, a company that fostered economic growth and social change within Nicaragua through sustainable real estate investment, ecotourism, and produce exportation.

I graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. in Anthropology.
