I write and consult for leading technology companies, primarily in artificial intelligence, finance, education, and product development. I also work part-time pro bono with non-profit organizations. 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 companies communicate. First, I help companies to develop their positioning and nail their key pitch. Next, I help them tell stories, by writing long-form content (typically articles, ebooks, and books) as an author or ghostwriter for CEOs and executives. I work with clients in North America, South America, Europe, and Africa. I also host a podcast on artificial intelligence, where I interview leaders on their companies and research.
I help organizations scale. I've started organizations before and now help them scale their operations and develop their technical capabilities. A common theme for me is education, especially for the most vulnerable: whether that's helping to scale an emotional skills curriculum in Colombia or advocating for aid in conflict-affected states. I listen to the statistics: that educating young children, particularly young women and girls, is the best investment that we can make.
I help startups launch. So I work on projects that train and invest in new enterprises, I teach marketing, I mentor and advise startups, and I write about how to build businesses. I also research and write about economic development regarding how startups 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 random stories about humans.
