I thought about tackling this monumental question by adding a list of accomplishments (probably short), activities (while fascinating to me maybe not so relevant), and inspirational stories (too long). Then I realized my passion for changemaking really comes down to two basic experiences: the influence of my family, and my work at Ashoka and Changemakers. My parents passed on and influenced me with two sets of traits: an analytical and intuitive perspective on the world, and a creative penchant for architecture and planning. While these had criss-crossed in my education and work throughout my life, it wasn't till Ashoka that these blended together into a profession of "changemaking"; or better said, a place where I can balance my impatience for creating new things with a team and platform that "thinks big and gets stuff done". I'm particularly inspired by the disruptive and amplifying opportunities that open innovation and online platforms can bring to Ashoka's vision, and drive for systems change.
Merida, Yucatan. I spent the first 5 years of life there, and while I can't necessarily piece together my collective thoughts and impressions as a three-year old, the photos, stories from my parents, and the few but vibrant personal memories always leave me with a pleasant state of place and history.
More recently, Montreal and Vancouver Canada. My first trip didn't happen till 2 years ago, but I've had already had incredible memories and experiences in both; in Montreal with some of my closest friends over a long weekend, and Vancouver now several times, spent with my other close friends at Changemakers. And did I mention I've become a fan, afficionado, and respectful supporter of hockey?
Oh, and always have a connection to Texas, consistently a second home and a proud place to say I'm from
