I am drawn to working on problems in the social impact space and using my background in cultural anthropology and policy studies - as well as my explorative and collaborative spirit - to develop solutions and ideas that can have a meaningful impact. My experience spans strategy analysis and development; social risk consultancy that sits at the nexus of organizations, community and culture; and leading projects that blend theory with practice. I am 'at home’ whether it's carrying out ethnographic research while navigating the creeks of the Niger Delta or the streets of Amman, standing on a stage and sharing new perspectives and findings, or helping companies and organizations bring a human centric lens to problem-solving and innovation processes.
Based in NYC, I am currently a Senior Strategy Consultant with ReD Associates
, a management consultancy that uses the engine of applied social science to solve problems for various organizations. I also have academic affiliations with the University of Basel (Institute for Social Anthropology), Central European University (School of Public Policy) the Niger Delta University (Political Science Department).
