Washington, D.C.
A math nerd at heart, I combine my love of numbers with my commitment to underserved populations around the world by engaging with data-driven international development work. I came to the agriculture field at Farmerline, where I worked with a wholly Ghanaian team to implement cutting-edge, for-profit ICT and digital finance solutions for smallholder farmers across West Africa. As an advocate for locally-based development expertise, I seek to connect organizations and companies across sectors to improve the quality of development work. Today, this means working with organizations to build partnerships, focus on the farmer, and build and use technology in smart, efficient ways.
