I’m deeply grateful to collaborate with — and be inspired by — incredible colleagues, partners, students, entrepreneurs, leaders, changemakers, and friends. Here are a few highlights from the last few years.

Teaching ‘Becoming a Changemaker’ @ UC Berkeley

I developed and teach “Becoming a Changemaker” to UC Berkeley undergraduates. It’s a transformational leadership course focused on positive change created specifically for diverse changemakers across sectors, roles and disciplines. It’s focused on action, developing real-world skills, gaining inspiration from diverse changemakers, and helping students become the kind of leaders our companies, our communities and our world need.

Co-Founder -> Advisor @ StartSomeGood

From an idea (literally!) on the back of a napkin into the leading crowdfunding platform for social entrepreneurs, I’m so proud of the community of 1000+ changemakers from 50+ countries who have raised over $10M USD on StartSomeGood to transform ideas for good into action. It’s also been the most incredible learning experience with lots of ups and downs along the way (often in the same day).

Impact Investing @ Change.org

I helped Change.org raise its “Series D” fundraising round totalling $30M USD from investors including Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Sam Altman.

Changemaker in Residence @ Berkeley Haas

I launch and scale new programs, and have the great honor of leading the Berkeley Haas Global Access Program, a transformative semester-long experience which helps students from all around the world develop an entrepreneurial mindset.
