Project Manager at Meta
What are you working on right now?
For work: Scaled operations process improvement - my team is the interface between Meta-internal and external content moderation sites.
On the side: Nothing specific, but I'm looking to someday be 100% in the social impact space. Anything around minimizing the impact of assholes: Police reform, military expenditure reduction, anti-recidivism, affordable housing.
Who is your ideal client?
Unsure - don’t have a specific business case in mind.
For volunteer assistance, I’m here to help anyone who wants to leverage and grow their business by thinking about tech, funding, AI-optimization, automated solutions, etc.
What is your big picture vision for your business?
At some point, I want to leverage bleeding edge tech for high-impact activism. This kind of thing is an example of exciting actions in this space: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/21/technology/facial-recognition-police.html
What is a common misconception about your work?
I’m wasting my time helping to make a social media product marginally more addictive. That may be true, but there are always brushstroke comments you can make to hand-wave the role of workers in big institutions/companies. It's always way more nuanced than that.
What podcast should everyone listen to?
The Memory Palace
What is your guilty pleasure?
Ice cream. Legal THC.
Why Femme X Columbia?
Focus on progressive ideas. Community. Folks are out and talking, not holed up in office spaces.
How do you describe Femme X to others?
A cool, progressive co-working space.
What is your favorite Femme X amenity?
The lobby for chilling.
What is your best piece of business advice?
Be humbly aggressive.
What does your ideal Saturday look like?
Do you have any passion projects outside of your job?
Helping small business owners however I can: Thinking through strategy with a tech focus, talking marketing, ad campaigns, etc.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My wife, Kathleen. So kind, but yet so convicted. Really hard balance to strike.
