Cultures make people, people make cultures.

I work where the mind meets the world to fight bias, disrupt cultural defaults, and design inclusive cultures.

I specialize in the identifying the power, promises, and pitfalls of culture and culture change.

Here are some examples of my research and academic publications. See my PORTFOLIO for examples of my work translating research into actionable insights for practitioners and general audiences and for media mentions.

Culture & social change

Social differences as assets

Empowering & inclusive education

Here are two recent talks applying this research to making change, one for a higher ed audience working to foster racial literacy and the other for community-based practitioners working to combat poverty.
