Hi there, it's nice to see you.
I'm about three things: faith, family, and business, usually in that order. I'm passionate about helping innovative organizations reach the other side of the screen (people) by bridging the gap between business and design. I studied Economics at UCF and The London School of Economics, and have been involved in all aspects of business from design to growth to acquisition.
I currently lead Zaengle, a web engineering firm that's a digital force for good. We help social impact orgs, digital agencies, and cause-driven brands achieve better through code. I love building and advising other businesses through VanLue Ventures, and I also write words and have been known to design occasionally.
Less poverty, more hope.
To build businesses that help individuals and organizations more effectively serve and reach their communities.
