Impact meets People meets Digital Innovation

I work collaboratively with impact organizations and change makers to introduce context-aware, appropriate innovations and solutions. My passion is to devise, develop and implement approaches and technologies that support and extend organizations’ missions – using methods that are centered around the people, causes and organizational limitations*, rather than technology for its own sake. I develop partnerships for success and have repeatedly spoken in public about the topics I am passionate about.

* financial, resources, time, etc.
