More about me...
If you want more on my professional background, you can see a more typical resume style on my LinkedIn Page.
I'm proud to serve as the President of the Board of Directors of Cristosal, the leading human rights organization working in the Northern Triangle of Central America. I also serve on the local advisory board of College Possible Washington, which supports first generation college students to access and succeed in higher education.
If you are curious about what I do outside my professional life, check out my some of my recent art. My new interest in making art grew out of taking a transformative class called The Artists Way, designed to help people recover their creativity.
In my free time, I also practice Capoeira, a Afro-Brazilian art form original developed by enslaved Africans to disguise their martial arts practice as dance and song. (Yes, that's me in the photo earning my first yellow cord.) I'm deeply grateful for the patience and skill of the three mestres I've studied under in the last five years: Mestre Pita of Bahia in Motion, Mestra Marcia Cigarra of ABADA San Francisco and Mestre Mangagna of the Washington Capoeira Center.
