Prior to joining the Wikimedia Foundation in July 2020, I served in such fund development roles as Director of Advancement with the University of Toronto's Regis College, Director of Development with Toronto's CRC | Regent Park Community Food Centre, and Fund Development Manager - Faith & Community with Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area.
A native of Cleveland, I am a dual Canadian/American national passionate about intercultural encounter; travel; equity; queer and Black diasporan inquiry; music and visual arts; and comparative theology, myth, and folklore.
I believe the decommodification of knowledge is among the most potentially transformative movements currently underway, and I'm excited to contribute to the effort with the Wikimedia Foundation.
A member of the Wikimedia Foundation’s Advancement team, I assist in fundraising strategy and major gift procurement for the Wikimedia Endowment. With a funding target of $100 million USD by 2026, the Endowment launched in 2016 to secure the advancement of free knowledge in perpetuity.
