Creative Director, Social Media and Event Manager
I have always felt a philanthropic responsibility to the LGBTQ+ community and the world at large. As a gay man living authentically without fear or shame, I can empathize with others and inspire them to do the same. Fighting discrimination has always been important to me, but I found a place for it in my career when I joined Dr. Blick at World Health Clinicians in 2012 as the Creative Content Manager. I’ve been the Creative Director HCAI since its inception in 2016, where I have worked to de-stigmatize HIV and affected individuals.
My background in art and photography has motivated my work at HCAI, where I have used creativity as a tool to normalize the LGBTQ+ experience while fighting for freedom of self-expression. I’ve led engaging social media campaigns, including HIV Advocates and Stigma Warriors, to reach new audiences and make a positive impact on our community. I also manage HCAI’s social media platforms, create dynamic brand visuals, and facilitate events.
I’m married and a father to a baby girl, who I am raising to have the same kindness and compassion that touches everything we do at HCAI.
