I am an economic development and communications strategist based in Chicago.
My areas of focus include inclusive economic growth, sustainable urbanization, civic technology that delivers modern public services, and effective public-private leadership networks.
I develop targeted initiatives and analyze new approaches and best practices in these areas, as well as develop communications and network-building strategies and tools to engage public officials, practitioners, business leaders and citizens. I am skilled in strategic leadership, project management, professional and technical writing, quantitative and qualitative analysis, and graphic and presentation design.
EXPERIENCE & TRAINING
I work in Global Philanthropy at JPMorgan Chase to enhance economic opportunity in neighborhoods, cities, and regions through workforce readiness, financial capability, and small business and community development.
Previously, as a consultant and founder of Eno Works LLC, I worked with national organizations like The Brookings Institution and Code for America, as well as regional groups including Civic Consulting Alliance in Chicago and Neighborhood Centers, Inc. in Houston.
From 2009 to 2014, I worked full-time at The Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program analyzing and communicating research findings, policy proposals, and best practices in economic development.
