I am also the creator of, the first professional networking website for sign language interpreters I developed and deployed a custom database implementation of an open source membership management system for one RID affiliate chapter. I previously owned an interpreting service firm and founded the first interpreter owned telephone company. Recently I graduated from law school and now focus my efforts on assisting entrepreneurs and non-profits seeking to engage with customers and members in creative ways through technology. I live in Long Beach, California with my partner, Charlie and our three dogs. I would enjoy the opportunity to support NYC Metro RID’s effort to connect and reconnect with students, members, and the greater community.
