work with me!
experienced founder + management consultant.
From the United States to Sub-Saharan Africa, I have designed globe-shifting solutions that bring racial + gender equity to the sectors of finance, agriculture, education, and entrepreneurship.
I worked for a decade as a global corporate + investment banker, structuring multi-billion dollar loans for technology corporates. Blaze Group was established to bridge world-class knowledge to the African diaspora.
I serve on the Advisory Boards of Kiva.org and Village Micro Fund. I served as the Fractional Chief Credit Officer of Hello Tractor, Inc., raising +$10MM and successfully deploying innovative asset financing to the un-/underbanked across Kenya, Nigeria, and Uganda (40% of borrowers being women).
My management consulting expertise has helped startups and nonprofits shrink their time from idea to project execution, pilot innovative business plans measured by KPIs, and achieve scale with the prudent use of resources.
