I'm a son, a husband and a father. I'm profoundly impacted by the experiences of those around me. I desperately seek social and environmental justice and work to achieve that by adding operational capacity to the ground-breaking initiatives I see around me. I love creative environments dependent on high levels of teamwork and experimentation - like Changemakers.com!
I want my daughter to grow up with the ability to recognize opportunities to improve the world around her, while also feeling empowered to drive the change she seeks.
I work with Changemakers Program at Ashoka's headquarters. Prior to arriving in Arlington, I served as Innovation Manager for International Bridges to Justice, where I conceptualized and managed collaborative competitions specific to the human rights sector. From 2001 to 2005, I served as Communications Manager for GlobalGiving, where I helped launch, publicize, and populate an online marketplace for international philanthropy. I have also worked as a Farber Intern for the Roberts Enterprise Development Fund (REDF), a leader for Overland’s rocky mountain service and backpacking summer program, and a consultant for AES Sonel investigating rural electrification opportunities in Cameroon. I have BAs in English Literature and Political Science from Bucknell University and an MBA from Duke University, where I was a Center for Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) Social Sector Scholar.
