Cooperatives are businesses that let us work together. 

I have supported cooperatives through working for government agencies and nonprofit organizations. I managed the US's largest government-funded initiative towards cooperatives and wrote three public reports on behalf of this program. From ecosystem building to business development, cooperatives offer a widerange set of strategies that can be applied to all fields.

During my time at the Worker Cooperative Business Development Initiative, I was the lead researcher and writer for three reports published on behalf of the City of New York.
