I want the world to be as cool as its potential. And until then, I will write, tweet, strategize, organize, and film to make it so. I'm a senior public affairs strategist from the South, D.C., and L.A. who cut my teeth on social justice, politics, and working families' advocacy. I also like a dope beat pumping through my headphones, art that drops my jaw, and movies that make me chomp much popcorn. But on a good day, it's all intertwined. What about you? Peep me on Twitter or Like my stuff on Facebook.
