An advocate for change

It is my belief that small businesses are the engine of the economy. The innovation, injection of competition and job creation they provide are key to our economic prosperity. Driven by this belief, my experience in the public and private sector, as well as my experience as an entrepreneur and expertise in supplier diversity, I have built a model that serves both small, diverse businesses and the world's largest brands and employers.

As CEO and Managing Principal of The Business Equality Network (BEQ), I now have strategic media, consulting, research and business accelerator services specifically designed to reach and empower LGBTQ, women, minority and other underrepresented, underserved and underutilized business communities. BEQ leverages its dedicated communication platforms to facilitate an increase in cross-sector engagement of diverse professionals, business-owners and entrepreneurs, and between small businesses and large corporations.
