In April of this year I became the Program Director of 30 Weeks, a program funded by Google that incubates the world’s most talented designers to create products and start companies that may just change the world. Before then I ran the Social Innovators Collective (which I founded) and produced classes and workshops on social enterprise and nonprofit business development at Harvard’s Social Enterprise Conference, Columbia and New York University’s Social Enterprise Boot Camp, School of Visual Art’s !mpact Design for Social Change, Brown and RISD’s A Better World By Design, General Assembly and others.

I've lived in New York since 1990 and though I love the city, I also love the outdoors – hiking, biking and swimming are some of my favorite summer activities. I'm an avid traveler and have been to over 45 countries. I return often to Italy where I lived for 3 years and still have close friends. Five things I couldn't live without are friends and family, music, my passport, chocolate, and my godchildren.

As a New Yorker, with so many friends coming through, I know the importance of what it means to have thoughtful guests!
