Biography

I am the Co-Founder and CEO of DDD. Prior to DDD, I worked as a management consultant with McKinsey & Company and as an international nonprofit consultant. I graduated from Harvard with a BA in economics and earned an MBA from MIT's Sloan School of Management.

For its business success and remarkable social impact, DDD and I have been recognized with the prestigious Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship as well as awards from the World Bank Development Marketplace, the IFC Grassroots Business Initiative and the Global Knowledge Partnership.

Among other media acclaim, I was profiled with DDD in Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat as his "favorite example" of a social entrepreneur's initiative.
