After moving to Philadelphia from Raleigh in 2015 (for my wife's med school), I became a full-time project-based freelancer. From Fortune 50 companies to local orgs, I planned and executed initiatives to help teams communicate effectively, reduce complexities, build easy-to-use solutions, and take steps towards clear goals using design thinking, plain language, and physical and digital tools. In 2016, I cofounded QSPACES to transform LGBTQ healthcare. We are using a 3-prong approach to reduce healthcare discrimination and disparities in the LGBTQ community–right now, more than 50% of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people have experienced discrimination of some kind! In my spare time, I garden, write, and tinker around my West Philly home.
