About me

I'm an entrepreneur and founder. I build organizational systems, and train kind, competent leaders.

On this site I write about STEM learning and tech. I'm also a meditation and life coach: I provide transformational training for life-affirming meditators with executive responsibilities. I geek out about Vajrayana Buddhism and meditation systems at Vajrayana Now.

In my twenties I worked with street kids in Zimbabwe, on a sanitation project in Soweto, securing water access for isolated communities in Lesotho, and land rights for forest dwellers in Bihar, India. Then I built a UK supported employment track for psychiatric service users. It worked. I moved to Amnesty International as their first program director for Wales during the transfer of power from the UK Parliament to the Welsh National Assembly.

I like to understand how things work, including the world. I've studied international diplomacy, economics, anthropology, and the history of European and Chinese economic divergence. I've written theses on land rights and market reform in Bhutan and Asian economic development. I hold the London School of Economics 2009 Fei Xiaotong prize for my writing on technological development in India and China.
