What I like most about my job: 

Hearing from donors how inspired and excited they are about One80 Place. I love finding creative ways to engage and inspire, and I’m grateful to work for an organization that is willing to try new things.   

As Diversity Chair, my goals are to:  

Spark conversation around diversity in fundraising and fundraisers, and to launch a Diversity Fellow program in 2016 to ensure that our Lowcountry Chapter accurately reflects the array of causes and nonprofits in our region.  

What I enjoy about serving on the board:  Engaging with this group of highly-talented peers from whom I learn constantly.  

I joined the Lowcountry Chapter of AFP because:  It is an active community of development professionals who are dedicated to their missions, supportive of their peers and passionate about advancing the fundraising profession.  

I'm originally from:  Los Angeles, CA

 My hobbies include:  Watching English Premier League Football (go Manchester United!), playing soccer and video games.  

Something my AFP colleagues might not know about me is:  In high school, I was part of a NASA apprenticeship program. 

If I had one week to do anything I wanted, I would:  Travel to Europe with my wife and daughter (possibly pop in for a Manchester United game).
