I am Director of US Development for SD Fertility Center, a leader in cutting-edge IVF treatment, and a recognized ally in the LGBT community. SD Fertility is a sponsor and presenter at the popular Men Having Babies (MHB) series of conferences around the world, and is a provider for MHB’s Gay Parenting Assistance Program (GPAP). SDFC also works with Bedford SPAR, which helps HIV+ men safely become fathers. Prior to my work at SDFC, I worked for a leading surrogacy agency, overseeing Client Development and Surrogate Matching for nearly a decade. I have been involved for years as a Trevor Project Ambassador in my hometown of DC. For over two years, I shadowed and photographed President Obama on the campaign trail and at private events in the mid-Atlantic region for Obama for America, and worked closely with the LGBT for Obama fundraising group.
