About me

I'm a partner and product director at Pixel, a digital product agency that helps global brands (Heineken, Nerf, Pepsi) create digital products and experiences that resonate with Millennial consumers. Our work has been featured in NY Times, Forbes, LA Times, and the SF Chronicle.

Previously, I co-founded OneConnect, an early crowdfunding platform that aimed to disrupt the flow of $600 billion in remittances each year. We partnered with the US State Department, Ford Foundation, and Western Union to enable migrants to collectively fund development projects in their home countries. Our work was recognized as an example of innovation by Secretary Hillary Clinton in 2012.
