But please, you can just call me Nas. A Seattle native, I have over 15 years of cultural & creative industry experience.
With a strong management background I take pride and pleasure in curating exceptional experiences in a variety of cultural settings.
I specialize in navigating conversations. I ask the hard questions which get results.
Heavily influenced by community work during my youth, I live by the motto "treat others with the respect you wish to receive".
This mindset has served me well as I navigate the"-isms" of climbing the corporate ladder.
In 2016, I invested in myself and launched my first business Pacific Empire LLC. with the sole purpose of generating economic wealth in the black community through ownership.
In partnership with Black & Tan Hall, I developed their corporate strategy through an equity and social justice lens.
Learn more about me, you're in the right place.
To partner with local entrepreneurs and organizations to create high quality experiences and businesses.
To create space for and celebrate the displaced and under-represented communities of Seattle through these partnerships.
To create opportunities for said communities to control, manage and own space in a city that has rapidly gentrified.
To honor our elders and ancestors by continuing to build on the foundation they laid for future generations.
