I write and consult for leading companies in artificial intelligence and financial technology. Previously, I led marketing at Nudge.ai and co-founded Young Diplomats of Canada. I believe in applying technology and mobilizing people to solve our most critical global challenges.
I help organizations advocate. I've started organizations before and now help them achieve their objectives. A common theme for me is education - whether that's helping to advance an emotional skills curriculum in Colombia or securing aid for conflict-affected states.
I help startups activate. So I work on projects that train and invest in new enterprises, I teach marketing, and I mentor and advise startups. I also research and write about economic development and how startup ecosystems improve urban economies.
I am an entrepreneur, nomad, and cyclist. I love dancing salsa and blues, urban architecture, and jazz music. I'm a geek who is constantly reading about technology, history, and society. I also have fist bumped Will Smith.
