I am working as a Learning & Design Strategy Consultant for the Culture and Capability Team of ASB in Auckland, New Zealand.
I participated in Autodesk's IDEAS, an exclusive gathering of thought leaders for the purpose of exploring design—as a systematic approach to problem-solving and innovation, encompassing form, function, and performance—and its impact on corporate and societal success.
I am Co-Founder of Matternet, a Singularity University company that will alleviate poverty and accelerate economic growth for the rising billion through a roadless transportation network.
I have applied for the TED Fellows 2012 Program. It is my goal to take Ocean (www.OceanUniversity.org) closer to reality.
I was a program participant with a full scholarship. The aim is to positively benefit a billion people within 10 years.
I was part of the Renewable Energy Expedition 2011 which was organized by ACORE (the American Council of Renewable Energy and 2041).
In March 2011, I was invited to be part of the 2011 Educational Base (E-Base) of 2041. The E-Base is located on the edge of the Russian Bellingshausen base in King George Island, Antarctica.
I was part of IAE11 this March. I recorded a Higher Education Podcast series of the experience which included living 10 days in Antarctica.
I was honored in mid-December 2010 to be invited to join the Media & Arts Advisory Board of the lifeboat foundation.
My talk focused on a project that I was part of in Ecuador through my semester aboard The Scholar Ship. The academic week in Ecuador was supported by UNICEF and UNDP.
One-hundreed individuals from the world’s most distinguished academic and professional institutions convened for two days of highly participatory discussion, planning, and action around the topic of design education and sustainability. The output of the Summit is an online toolkit now available for anyone.
