I love to build things. I am an engineer, executive, entrepreneur, and startup advisor, mentoring multiple startups, a Starting Bloc Fellow, Sandbox Member and Chicago Ambassador, ThinkImpact Fellow Selectee, and a World Economic Forum Global Shaper. What excites me: Building things. I am interested in the critical nexus between global development and economic solidarity and in the role of technology and policy to mitigate its environmental and socio-economic impacts; with a focus on developing economies.
