skeptical optimist. insatiable seeker. tireless advocate.
I think a lot about how to make things better.
And I create impact-maximizing tools to help people help others more intelligently.
Join me and a growing community of changemakers in doing good, smarter.
"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy.
If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem.
But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to
improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world.
This makes it hard to plan the day." - E.B. White
I spent the past decade in ~70 countries on a changemaking inquisition, exploring how to most effectively improve upon undesirable realities in the world.
Professional experience spanned the humanitarian, development, conservation, animal welfare and private sectors.
I held roles like: Executive Director/CEO; Fellow; Social-Entrepreneur-in-Residence; Middle East Regional Advocacy + Policy Advisor; Nigeria INGO Forum Representative (representing ~40 INGOs); Country Director; Senior Consultant; among many others.
I also coauthored the global standards guidance document for needs assessments, progress monitoring and impact evaluation in humanitarian contexts, translated into all official UN languages and used by all UN agencies, NGOs, donors, governments, etc responding to humanitarian crises worldwide.
Currently, I’m busy with:
founding and running multiple social enterprises
providing impact giving advisory consultations
speaking and lecturing at businesses, universities and events
consulting for INGOs/UN agencies/social businesses
instructing top-rated online courses to students in 100+ countries
hosting two podcasts about doing good more intelligently
providing Global Citizen mentorship to high-potential changemakers
