Hi, I’m Shabazz. Growing up in Brooklyn gave me a special appreciation for the issues that weave our neighborhoods and cities together. Since graduating from Tufts in 2011, I’ve spent much of my time working to make urban areas better connected, cleaner and more livable.
I’m passionate about making cities better, especially when it comes to equitability, mobility and transportation. Currently, I’m the founder and CEO of Oonee, a startup that has developed a smart, scalable mobility hub for bikes, bikeshare and scooters. Unlike conventional solutions, Oonee is designed to enhance public spaces, with a special emphasis on amenities that everyone can enjoy like benches, ambient lighting, WiFi and greenery.
