I’m most excited to work on projects that… connect uncommon collaborators around a powerful vision for the future.
I’m looking for partners that can help me with… leveraging and enhancing the capacity of the Singularity University community to apply technology to global issues.
A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… any moment at the end of an undertaking that required dozens of hands to make happen, when we could recall the birth of an idea and know we had seen it through to completion.
Innovations in my field I’m most excited to work on… solutions for dynamic governance and citizen-driven innovation.
