I am most excited to work on projects that… develop localized resilience.

I am looking for partners that can help me… find opportunities in grantmaking, philanthropy, and project M&E.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… when locals explicitly asked for training and resources to work with others in their area to deliver a project themselves.

Innovations in my field that that I am most excited to work on… are mapping disinformation flows on public networks.
