I’m a social entrepreneur and professional faculty member at UC Berkeley where I developed and teach this transformational course, “Becoming a Changemaker.” I co-founded, and now advise, StartSomeGood.com which has helped 1000+ changemakers in 50+ countries raise over $10M USD to start and scale their ventures.  Other adventures include running Scandinavia’s leading social enterprise incubator; helping Change.org raise $30M from investors like Richard Branson and Bill Gates; and giving talks on leadership and social innovation in venues ranging from Ukraine to Cambodia; LA to the Arctic Circle; and for the Obama White House.

I'm deeply honored to have received UCLA's Recent Graduate of the Year Award in 2017 and to have been named a “top 100 visionary leader" by Real Leaders Magazine, a top under-40 North American leader by Friends of Europe and -- much to my parents' surprise -- a middle school PE award recipient.
