Your favorite food:

I love an old worn-in booth at a Jewish deli. Give me a soup and salad, endless cups of coffee and the biggest black and white cookie available.

What is your vision for RadComms?

My vision is for RadComms to be a leader in our sector, providing thought leadership, learning and community for progressive folks committed to dismantling oppressive systems and narratives. Together, we can build the world we wish existed, one that centers justice, freedom, dignity, interconnectedness, and belonging for all.
