For folx who don't know, how do you identify in the community and what are your pronouns?
My pronouns are He/Him/His
What do you think you'll enjoy the most about working with the LGBTQ+ Community?
The number one thing that I'll enjoy about working with the LGBTQ+ Community is working with people who dare to live as their true and authentic self.
One of your roles as Program Manager is facilitating the Silver Connections Program. What is something you consider to be important in working with our LGBTQ+ Elders?
Listening. Our LGBTQ+ Elders have paved the way for us, so I would be remiss not to listen and learn.
What is something you would like to accomplish while in your new position as Program Manager for The LOFT?
I would like to network with the community as much as possible. There are so many people to meet and so many people to learn from.
