I partner with individuals and leaders who are working for social transformation in the world as well as in their projects, groups and organizations.
Since being a student leader in the US Anti-Apartheid and Divestment Movement, I have worked for racial and economic justice at the intersection of social crisis and political will (ACT-UP, Harm Reduction, HIV Prevention Justice). I have co-founded both failed as well as tested and scaled social innovations.
I earned a degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Cornell University and a master’s degree with a focus in health policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. I also studied structural family therapy directly with the revolutionary practitioner Salvador Minuchin and harm reduction with the original US-based educator Edith Springer. I learned from my students as a teaching associate with the Wagner School of Public Service at New York University.
In 2013, I completed a certification course in Permaculture Design, which I practice with friends and neighbors of the Bashakill Family Farm.
