My musings

Quien soy?

There are a few basic things about me you should know. Firstly, I'm a first-generation American raised in the Bay. My mom's from Nicaragua and my dad is from Germany, or Bavaria as he prefers.

Secondly, I believe full-heartedly that expanding access to seats of power for people of diverse and marginalized backgrounds is table stakes for accomplishing major feats of true and lasting value in our world. There are few things I enjoy more than working with diverse, motivated, thoughtful, and talented teams.

Lastly, I like to solve problems. They annoy me. Especially the big ones that hurt lots of vulnerable people and our planet. To whatever capacity I can, I want to help fix these problems with sustainable, effective, ethical, and, where appropriate, lucrative solutions.

I know I (we) will fail countless times along the way. But we'll never take L's, just learn lessons. Failing is a prerequisite.

If you're trying to work on solving big problems that negatively impact vulnerable people and our planet, let's talk.
