An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
Going gorilla tracking in Rwanda was one of the most amazing things I've done. And then going to the Genocide Memorial in Kigali was the most humbling thing I've ever experienced. It was that moment that I realised I wanted to work with individuals/foundations who have the opportunity to use their assets and resources to make a positive difference, actually make that difference.

A career highlight
Gaining support from a diverse range of individuals such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu and George Clooney to make positive change. My whole career has been shaped around knowing that working relationships like that ARE possible to build, and seeing what positive impact can be made.
