Washington, District of Columbia, US
I am a Management Consultant and Venture Capitalist with Startup and Fortune 500 experience in Project Management, Product Management, Process Improvement, Account Management, and Quality Assurance. I earned a B.B.A. in Management with a concentration in Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship from James Madison University. I am the Founder of Eventgo.io, a Social Media and Events platform designed to connect users to the people and businesses they enjoy through event-centric interactions.
Working with diversified teams to create amazing experiences truly excites me. I am passionate and eager to learn and discuss all things entrepreneurial that may be New Ventures, Stocks, Real Estate Investments or anything else you can throw at me where there’s opportunity.
I also advocate for Equality in Tech and most recently have helped support Diversity and Inclusion efforts through several Employee Resource Groups (BPG@CapTech Ventures, Black@VMware, AACE@BAE Systems).
