Bio: When I applied to the SJEIC, I wanted to work toward advocating for equity, inclusivity, and equality in hopes of one day opening my own non-profit organization that upholds these same values. Working here has allowed me to gain valuable knowledge, experience, and connections that I otherwise wouldn't have. The SJEIC has allowed me to feel comfortable as myself, and discover where in life I want to go. I hope to continue to learn from the experiences of others, empower people, and do work that I feel is important.

I enjoy long walks on the beach, journaling and writing poetry, and participating in theatre. I'm a dad to two cats who are also my besties. That said, I'm always down to make some more human friends, so don't be afraid to reach out! The main reason why I work at the SJEIC is to guarantee that there is a place for everyone and that community resources are accessible and equitable. Something I go by is "we honor the dead and fight like hell for the living."
