I am currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in Sociology, with a long-term goal of earning a law degree. I am an outspoken advocate on a wide variety of civil rights issues, love meeting and getting to know new people, and am always up for an intellectual challenge. In my free time I enjoy riding my motorcycle and seeing great films. I've been an electronics geek since I was a little kid and love building things and taking things apart to see how they work--if you've got something electronic I can probably fix it.
In my professional and academic life, I'm the founder of Workforce Advocacy Center, Inc., an Albany, NY not-for-profit organization that uses works to eliminate discrimination in education, employment and housing against social and cultural minorities including people with arrest and conviction records, LGBT individuals, and followers of non-traditional religions such as Atheism and Wicca. My current projects include a study of the effects of employer statements about background checks in advertisements on job application rates by minority groups, a study on how much people re-entering the workforce with a criminal record know about anti-discrimination laws, and a treatise on discrimination lawsuits under NY Correction Law Article 23-A.
