Volunteer Work

  • I am working to form a produce co-operative in Delridge.  I maintain our website and ordering database, as well as writing press releases and explanatory documentation, perform rudimentary market analysis and accounting, interact with community leaders, write grants, procure donations, and solicit support from community organizations.
  • Recently, I participated in the incorporation of Delridge Produce Cooperative, and hold part of its business title in trust for the future Board of Directors and Member-Owners.
  • In 2009, I wrote and managed a $15,000 grant from the Department of Neighborhoods to distribute free produce to residents of Delridge.
  • I worked with ERW to remind citizens to vote in the 2008 Nov. 4th election.
  • During 2006, I gave my time at numerous Seattle LGBT Center fundraising events.
  • In 2003, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to go to Nicaragua to help hand out eyeglasses to those who had no access to them.
