This city electrifies me, keeps me turned on. I function on pedestrian density. I thrive on serendipitous meetings. I'm a coffee shop sketch artist, a people watcher, a logistician. I'm a nights and weekends guy. I have big hopes and complicated thoughts.
I'm a human being, goddamnit.
I’ve been doing logistics for non-profits in the region since 2010. I like the base of the Maslow’s Hierarchy - I’ve helped move more than 12 million pounds of food and more than $4M in surplus medical supplies.
I worked at Global Links, where I managed their distribution programs and keep the inventory flowing. Global Links redirects still-useful medical materials away from landfills and towards health initiatives, both locally and internationally, mostly in Latin America. Everything from Hydraulic Lifts to 60mL syringes.
I worked on and off at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank from Fall 2010 until November 2015. I coordinated the Produce to People program there - large scale produce distributions throughout the region. Check the header image for an archetypal illustration of one. (I drew that!)
I was the Brigade Captain over at Code for Pittsburgh, the city's civic data nonprofit.
I'm an alumni of Public Allies, the Americorps program. I was in the 2010-2011 Pittsburgh class.
