I am passionate about educating and training individuals, organizations, and corporations about the impact they can have on the society around them. Increasing community outreach and investment in human capital can turn our seemingly small ripples into world changing waves.

Growing up in rural Minnesota, I was always intrigued to find a world bigger than mine. This curiosity took me around the world, where I encountered people and experiences that shaped who I am today. I have had the opportunity to meet some of the world’s most influential people, and also the world’s forgotten people. My passion is to bridge this gap between the rich and the poor, the influential and the marginalized, the remembered and the forgotten. In doing so, we are reminded that we really are not so different.
