Meet Teddy

A highly accomplished IT project manager and a business consultant with an MBA from Johns Hopkins University, Teddy learned first hand of the severe hardships faced by the vast majority of Americans by witnessing his own parents struggle to provide for their children, experiencing his own hardships trying to climb the corporate ladder only to end up enduring two and a half years of homelessness.

After working his way out of homelessness and poverty, Teddy is determined to speak for the voiceless and stand up for the marginalized and disenfranchised poor, working and middle-class. Teddy realizes that progress in America cannot happen unless we get beyond the toxic “us vs them” politics that has polarized our country and made us forge about our common humanity in the process. Teddy’s aim is to move America beyond division and antipathy and towards forbearance and empathy by refusing to demonize anyone and instead use his experiences to deliver this one undeniable message: we have a lot more in common than we have that divides us.
