Let's swing for the fences

I'm working on or actively exploring projects that sit at the intersection of:

  • It's a big problem I care deeply about; global health, extreme poverty, technology, democracy and climate.

  • There are wonderful, ambitious, excellent people to work with on it; I love to work with pragmatic idealists, excited to learn quickly, move fast, and swing for the fences.

  • I have something unique to contribute; this often means building organizations, teams, products or technology, understanding how to influence public policy, and ways of mobilizing money at massive scale.

I also support leaders or organizations on a range of topics as an advisor or board member. Below are some of the topics where I've some hard won lessons to share - from both successes and failures - in order help you succeed.
