What do you do for a living?

I work at the intersection of anthropology, design, and product development.

How do you plan to use business to make the world a better place in the near-future?

After years of researching the impact of human rights work, and doing that sort of work, I'm looking to move into more direct work on social problems with recent experience I've gained in using people-centered research to solve business, organizational, and design problems.

Introduction

Moving on an arc from social research to applied social research in business to social impact.
