Binding agents are flexible materials that bring other parts together to form a whole. Whether used in cooking, construction, or art projects, binding help things stick together. And I do, too.
Today, I operate at the intersection of emerging tech, education, and community as a binding agent for organizations and ideas. People know me as a super-connector and serial community-builder. I work across tech startups, venture capital firms, non-profits, and educational institutions as a catalyst who makes things happen.
I’ve always been good at sticking things together.
Back in high school, I never left home without a roll of masking tape—a surprisingly versatile and yet overlooked adhesive. With sticky stuff always in my pocket, adhesion became my go-to solution for any problem. I repaired collapsed textbooks, fixed broken dioramas, sealed up lunch leftovers, cordoned off movie-theater rows, created instant box handles, cleaned crumbs off tables, removed cat hair from sweaters, and even taped off problematic cracks on the sidewalk.
Little did I know this quirky habit would lead to a career built upon creating connections.
Today, I work as a binding agent for organizations and ideas. As a community builder, journalist, and activator, I help groups find cohesion and kickstart new initiatives. Whether that’s bringing together tech startups and educators or theatre professionals and AI founders, I love to see what’s possible when we form new links and unexpected bonds.
Lately I’m focused on operating at the invisible intersecting points between the emerging tech sector and the public education space. Past projects include activating a public-private partnership to unlock micro-internships at tech companies for thousands of high school students, jumpstarting a founder community for a crypto-native VC fund, and leading a “future of work” room to introduce AI & crypto startup founders with 2,500 high school students and teachers.
I look forward to seeing what sticky stuff we can come up with together.
