I run innovative philanthropic campaigns around the world that make charity personal. My goal is to connect audiences to incredible causes and provide a direct means to help. At the age of 32, I've explored 45 countries and express my love of culture and humanity through my work. I hope my story inspires others to live a passionate, generous, and global life.
In eight years of storytelling, I've represented dozens of companies and hundreds of generous donors to help to thousands in need. My efforts have been featured by the Today Show, The New York Times, Crain's Detroit Business, the Huffington Post, and Cosmopolitan Magazine for pioneering a new, engaging approach to philanthropy.
I was born and raised in Michigan, graduated from Albion College, and currently live on the edge of Detroit.

Welcome to my world
I love what I do.
I founded my first socially-conscious business in 2010, at the age of 24. Eight years later, I'm stronger than ever.
I've worked on-the-ground around the world. Every country I've visited is represented by a patch on my green travel bag.
I run crowdfunding campaigns to help incredible causes I discover around the globe. Every dollar raised goes directly to helping people in need.
