Hey there! Thank you for visiting my page!
I am the development manager for Oakwood Arts and one of the proud M4K team members. Unfortunately, I am not able to grow a mustache but I didn't let that stop me from doing what I can to raise much-needed funds for this organization that means so much to me. Throughout the month of November, I plan to wear a variety of stylish mustaches to raise awareness for Oakwood Arts' mission and bring in support for our programming.
As a photographer myself OA's mission to make creative careers more accessible to all means so much to me. I know from experience that succeeding in creative industries can be tough if you don't have the proper connections or access to training. Even more so young creatives of color trying to break into an industry where they are historically underrepresented, face additional barriers making it even tougher. Oakwood Arts works hard to provide that training, and access and eliminate those barriers to make these industries more accessible, eventually leading to more diverse perspectives and content creators in the mainstream media we all consume every day.
Help me help Oakwood Arts support creative opportunities for all!
