I’m a leader, educator, executive, school founder, and entrepreneur. I’m attracted to big ideas that challenge the status quo, and driven by a deep commitment to equity and racial justice. My superpower is a unique capacity to follow through and deliver the how, leading groups of people through complex change with care and fidelity. If you’re a leader facing a perplexing challenge, or trying to bring a big, inspiring idea to life, get in touch. I can help.

Complementing nearly two decades of experience starting new organizations, building teams, and managing complex organizational transformations is a passion for the creative – from writing poetry, rapping and comedy to travel and planning The 2019 Party. I love being a Dad, and my family and I recently moved to Asheville, NC where I am I am consulting with education organizations, nonprofits, schools, and startups with big ideas and the desire to change the world.

My work has been recognized with a number of awards including Carnegie Mellon’s Recent Alumni Award, Dean’s Diversity Fellowship, an Executive Residency, and the Otto A. Davis award for commitment to social and racial justice. In 2014, I was named one of Pittsburgh’s 40 Under 40. Let’s connect and see what we can do together.
