Founder, Black Founders

I’m a total geek for commerce, citizens, and consumers. Currently consulting consumer brands/startups and government agencies on business strategy, marketing, and innovation.

I am the founder and creator of Speak Chic – the app that teaches you how to correctly pronounce fashion brands. Speak Chic has been featured in numerous fashion magazines and blogs, including Harper’s Bazaar UK, Refinery 29, Cosmopolitan, and Sunrise Channel 7 — Australia’s #1 breakfast show.

I am also one of the founders of Black Founders and the Ideas Are Worthless conference. We develop programs related to diversity in tech, produce hackathons on HBCU campuses, and have produced tech events in SF, Silicon Valley, NYC, Atlanta, and Austin.
