I’m a gay ADHD icon 馃彸锔忊嶐煂, nail polish aficionado 馃拝馃徎, and San Diegan by choice 馃彇锔 (even if LA will always be home in my heart 馃挅).聽I pay the bills as a nonprofit leader 馃懆馃徏鈥嶐煉 and am in the discernment process for a potential future in ordained ministry in the UCC 鉀笍.

CliftonStrengths 馃捈 says I lead by influencing; the Enneagram 馃寑 says I’m a 1; Carl Jung馃馃徎鈥嶐煍 says I’m an ENFJ. My closest friends say I build bridges 馃馃徏 between people and communities that need each other more than they realize.

But mostly I just care a whole lot about getting the most out of life 馃ぉ and giving as many people as I can a shot at doing the same. 

Monday through Friday, I help government programs and nonprofits stay accountable to the everyday people they serve. Learn more about my day job and work experience here.

I’m also a member in discernment in the United Church of Christ.

As I discern a call to ordained ministry, one of my favorite things has been helping Christians explore their place in the story of God and humanity.

You can read my latest sermons here.

When I’m not doing any of that, I provide strategic advice to nonprofits and their funders.

Under the Four-Sector Strategies brand, I’ve helped everyone from upstart founder-driven organizations to community cornerstones figure out how to make the biggest difference possible with every dollar they have. My primary expertise is in development and operations and outreach. I’ve got a knack for identifying big difference-makers, so funders often look to me for guidance selecting grantees.
