ABOUT ME
I've worked to dismantle oppression as an educator in New York, from the classroom to the nonprofit space to, now, the largest division in the city's Department of Education. I also provide consulting services as a facilitator, learning designer, and sensitivity reader.

In all contexts, my approach is the same: I debias people and the systems they form together, advancing individual development and collective change. I model the awareness I ask of others, acknowledging the biases I, like everyone, am conditioned to uphold but must confront to align my intentions to my impact.

On a concrete level, I use breakout spaces to maximize dialogue and minimize professional risk through careful grouping; design learning based on the needs and perspectives within an organization, especially but not exclusively from its staff of color; and coach people on making small, permanent shifts in how they work together that, as a whole, form powerful progress.

Outside of work, I live in Harlem with my partner and our "furmily" of two cats and a very sweet senior dog.
