I am a graphic designer (part of the marketing & communications department) at CAP Tulsa, an anti-poverty organization and national leader in early childhood education.

I also serve as the co-captain of Code for Tulsa (an official Brigade of Code for America and a user group of the Techlahoma Foundation), and a correspondent for Focus: Black Oklahoma.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Administrative Leadership and a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree from the University of Oklahoma, with a concentration in civic technology. I was selected by national urban-affairs magazine NextCity as part of its 2014 Vanguard Class. In 2015, I was certified by IDEO and +Acumen, in the practice of Human-Centered Design. In 2022, I was certified as a facilitator by the Mayors Office of Resilience and Equity alongside the OSU Center for Public Life.

In 2021, I wrote two books ("The Victory of Greenwood" and “A Kids Book about the Tulsa Race Massacre”) about the building, destruction, and re-building of the Greenwood neighborhood in Tulsa, OK.

As serial entrepreneur, writer, and community activist, I was the forefront of many of Tulsa’s innovative ideas and civic engagement movements including the formation of Tulsa Fablab, The Forge, YP Tulsa, Tulsa Global Entrepreneur Week, the Tulsey Awards, TulsaNow, and Smart Growth Tulsa.

I currently serve as a member of Tri-City Collective, and on the board of All Souls Unitarian Church, the Urban Coders Guild, the Advisory Board for the City of Tulsa’s Office of Performance Strategy and Innovation, and the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) MPA Advisory Board.
