Tommy Bobo, Nonproﬁt Database Specialist
I joined AGH Strategies in September 2014 as a Nonproﬁt Database Specialist. Previously I was the Development Associate at the Friends Committee on National Legislation. While there I was in charge of database administration, monthly giving, and income reporting.
I came to the nonproﬁt database world through a graphic design temp job that slowly turned into a development temp job. Though my ﬁrst experience with an open source database was conﬁguring a candle store’s online store. If you ever want to discuss the best way to sort fragrant candles, I am more than willing. I am also a working visual artist and ﬁne arts educator.
Tyrell Cook, CRM Developer
Having seen the inner workings of a non proﬁt, I was amazed to see what CiviCRM can do for an organization. I am excited to contribute towards the advancement of CiviCRM and to assist AGH Strategies in being a valuable asset to non-proﬁts across the globe.
Kara Desmond, Nonproﬁt Database Specialist
I joined AGH Strategies in September of 2014 as a Nonproﬁt Database Specialist after using CiviCRM in my role as Deputy Director of a small nonproﬁt. Having used CiviCRM as a tool to track contributions, run events, organize memberships, and keep track of relationships, I have experienced ﬁrst hand the value of a customizable database and a good support team.
Alice Frumin, CRM Developer
I joined AGH Strategies in February of 2016 as a CRM Developer after completing General Assembly’s Web Development Immersive and using CiviCRM in my role as Operations Manager at the National Center for Creative Aging to organize contacts, run event registrations, track contributions, and manage memberships.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Go Badgers!
Andrew G. Hunt, Principal
My background is in nonproﬁt governance and environmental programs, so I didn’t seek out data management—it just caught up with me. After years directing programs and serving on the boards of community-based and regional nonproﬁts, I knew that the only thing more frustrating than working with nonproﬁt database systems was trying to wing it without one. At the same time, a promising new open-source system came along: CiviCRM.
I’m experienced in implementing CiviCRM, Wordpress, Joomla, and Drupal for nonproﬁts, associations, and political organizations, integrating membership, donations, program outcomes, events, grants, and bulk email. My experience started out of necessity in 2006: Common Ground Athens needed a CRM, and we didn’t have much of a budget. Soon enough, other organizations sought my expertise in translating their needs to an efﬁcient, effective database system.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree from St. John’s College and a Master’s from the University of Georgia Institute for Nonproﬁt Organizations.
Sanjay Jain, Nonproﬁt Database Specialist
I joined AGH Strategies in September 2014. My background is in business, ﬁnance and management. I have worked in both proﬁt and non-proﬁt sectors for over 25 years. I am drawn to using IT to manage organizations and improve operations. Early in my career I learned MS Access to develop a reservation system for a tour operator, and it transformed their operations in time of rapid expansion.
Some time ago I came to understand the philosophy of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), and it was not just an eye opener but a paradigm shift. Soon afterward, while researching event registration systems for a non-proﬁt, I came across CiviCRM and immediately saw it’s potential for a variety of uses. I have wanted to get involved ever since.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree from London Guildhall University (UK).
Mika Weinstein, Project Lead
I joined AGH Strategies in July 2016 as a Project Lead. Previously, I was a Programs and Evaluation Manager at Food Recovery Network, where I led our transition to a new CRM system. Part of this work was designing a customized database to suit our organizational needs. In addition to overseeing these systems, my role involved many aspects of nonproﬁt management, including evaluation, event planning, administering grants, and supporting a network of almost 200 student chapters across the country.
I have a B.A. from the University of Oregon, and volunteer as the VP of Operations for Wild Wilderness Women, a women’s outdoors organization.
