I believe that by bridging the gap between elected leadership and the people, we can elevate marginalized voices and make lasting change. Over the past 8 years, my professional work has been to strengthen the Democratic Party. From campaigning I have learned that it’s critical we build a pipeline of leaders, develop financial infrastructure, and organize a coalition of supporters to take them across the finish line. I have worked with candidates at every level of the Democratic Party to implement progressive policies that improve our quality of life and empower our communities.  


I am the Co-CEO of Makers Strategies, a full-service social change consultancy that advises first-time political candidates, organizations and grassroots movements in navigating a political system that is not working for our communities. Because of our work LA County is being represented by younger and more diverse candidates. As a result of our most recent victory, LA County will now invest upwards of $1 billion a year to address racial injustice.


Prior to setting up my consultancy I served as the Chief of Staff at a public affairs consulting firm. In the last cycle alone, I helped raise $10 million for the Biden-Harris campaign, Senate Majority PAC, and the DCCC.


Financial support alone cannot move progressive policies forward. That’s why I volunteer as a member of several grassroots clubs and organizations including Culver City Democratic Club, Heart of LA, LACYD, Planned Parenthood and Supermajority. Thank you for your support in my first-time candidacy for Assembly District Delegate.

Pledge to vote!
