Economist, Scientist & Technologist
A chemist by trade, I am always questioning the status quo and hypothesizing how both science and technology can enhance the human experience. Through my involvement streamlining organizations' data operations, improving consumer product manufacturing methods and developing therapeutic agents for cancer, I found that innovation stems from the insight uncovered through data.
Sitting at the intersection of economics, innovation & policy, I can take an idea from inception to dollars through commercializing research & development and scaling an organization while complying with industry regulations. I am particularly focused on transforming foundational industries that serve as the infrastructure to modern society, as I believe they have the most impact.
As a futurist passionate about solving complex challenges in education, inclusion and the broader economy, I am a Fellow at Opportunity Hub, an inclusive ecosystem building platform for early S.T.E.A.M exposure, immersive technology skills education, high tech careers of the future, startup entrepreneurship resources and wealth creation opportunities. I also serve as a sales & business development mentor to the inaugural cohort of the Ascend2020 program, a technology startup and small business support ecosystem for minority-led companies in the Atlanta area.
