Why do you do what you do?
I found I love two things: using the power of analytics to tell compelling stories and working on a small team of dedicated analysts. Personally, I am passionate about doing what I can to help those in need and enjoy giving back to several local foundations and non-profits in my spare time. Working at Pursuant allows me to combine my professional skills and interest in analytics with my passion to work with non-profits.
When not fundraising, I’m usually…
Spending time with my son and our black lab, reading as much as possible (mostly about history and politics, which I studied in college) and listening to music. I try to see as many live shows a year as I can. I tend to explore new hobbies constantly, although I abandon many quickly. Recently, I’ve tried my hand at writing, yoga, learning guitar, sound production, and cooking.
