A pleasure to make your acquaintance.
“Pierce's drive and intellect have been instrumental in the success of the Hopps Scholars Program. His diligence has served as an enormous help in establishing the Hopps Research Scholars Program as a national force for those students at Morehouse College committed to doctoral advancement....What I admire most about Pierce, however, is his character. While accomplishing so much over his collegiate career, he manages to stay humble, helpful and considerate of his fellow Morehouse brothers.”Rahmelle Thompson, Director, John H. Hopps Research Scholars Program
“Team Sherwood, I want to take a few moments to highlight Pierce Gordon's professionalism and the quality of his instruction. He was high energy, extremely fluent in the topics discussed, personable and dedicated to providing quality instruction while ensuring any individual's hangups of individuals were handled during breaks of after class. If all your instructors were this strong you'd become a household name in testing prep though word of mouth - he's that good.”Student, Sherwood Test Prep

How do I serve?
As a dual NSF and Chancellor’s Fellow in the Energy and Resources Group (ERG), I research frameworks, methodologies, and contexts for evaluating innovation for social change. By understanding how socially-minded organizations integrate, support, and channel innovation-incentivizing processes to generate value for end consumers, I aim to characterize current best practices for developing novel products, agnostic of geographic, temporal, or cultural context.
I’m involved in the nexus between design, international development, and evaluation. Let’s collaborate.
I work on website development, I work in design, and I work in writing. During my undergraduate respite, I earned over $300,000 in scholarship funding, and helped many of my colleagues write applications that got them into graduate school. Maybe you, or that aspiring college student you know, will be next.
I’ve made my life mentoring, instructing, and supporting communities which deserve support. Whether I’m teaching mentees about the importance of graduate school, teaching students design thinking or GRE/SAT preparation tips, or developing marketing designs and plans for the Morehouse Bay Area Alumni Association – I live to serve.
Let’s find how we can work together.
Got other ideas? My eyes and ears are open.
let’s make something beautiful together.
