Associate General Counsel, Civil Rights

Claire Huxtable, Benjamin Matlock, Uncle Phil, and Maxine Shaw encouraged me to become a lawyer. Yes, I know they are fictitious characters playing lawyers on TV but you can’t be what you don’t see.  

I have pioneered legal and product efforts at the intersection of civil rights and technology in advancing an inclusive ecosystem. Prior to Meta, I led legal, product and policy efforts at Airbnb, the Obama White House, the U.S. Department of Commerce and NASA. 

Outside of lawyering, I am a filmmaker, content creator, and hip-hop storyteller that believes there is healing power in sharing experiences through lyricism and poetry. I’ve produced and directed a docuseries, a short, and am working on another film centered around healing and hip hop. In addition, I have a podcast where I dissect different songs and give you a call to action through lyrics. 
Feel free to reach out to me if you want to talk law, equity in building tech products/platforms, crisis management, economic development in Africa and/or creating cohesive communities, but really feel free to reach out if you want to talk lyrics, healing, and life purpose.
