CHW aims to foster and bolster marginalized communities by creating positive interaction feedback loops between brands and those they interact with. He helps clients find their purpose, break down their vision into tangible goals, remain accountable to their audiences, and build enough trust with customers to turn them into advocates – integrating these insights into brand architecture and programming.

 

Over dozens of brands, he has honed his skills in developing and managing brand identities, building efficient operational systems and teams, and executing culture-curated events. When not working on client materials, he provides workshops for business accelerators across the Northeast and shares his story with organizations and young professionals to encourage equitable opportunities for people of color and the power of localized community efforts.

 

Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they make it their mission to ensure people know there are Black folk from there too.

There are Black folk everywhere.
