Humanist & Urbanite
Passionate about the human experience, I believe in building infrastructure that creates better connections amongst people while enhancing their daily lives. I view modern infrastructure as a means to support the innovation economy by creating networks that bridges digital information and physical structures. I am particularly interested in building smart and compassionate cities that provide affordable housing, access to healthcare, efficient mobility and workforce training for next-generation of jobs. The sharing economy and the subscription model can create better access to needed resources amongst city residents.
Chemist, Economist & Technologist
Educated as a chemist, I am a creator who compounds natural elements real world outcomes and also a data scientist who can solve complex problems through data. Concentrating in economics, I understand how innovation can improve the broader population, such as the sharing economy. I took my expertise in data, economics and science to IBM, advising fortune 500 enterprises on the 4th industrial revolution and emerging technology to support those initiatives.
Ethics in Technology
From research to sales, I have the unique skillset to take an idea from inception to revenue. At the fore front of consumer data privacy regulations, I have developed a deep understanding of technology and public policy. As we continue into a digital economy, policy will continue to be challenged, and I am an asset to innovators and policymakers to better understand how they can influence and impact the other. I view personal data as an extension of self entitled to human rights and privacy.
