Today’s complex, interconnected societal challenges are opportunities for collaborative, cross-sector ways of working. I am a big picture thinker and aspiring moral leader whose purpose is to contribute to tackling global challenges for social impact through cross-sector collaboration.

I’m fascinated by systemic structures of inequity, by human psychology and its relationship with power, and by how we are designing futures, subconsciously or overtly, every day, particularly in the realm of technology and AI development.

My interests and experiences span social impact, ethics, shared value, human-centred design, social innovation, systems thinking, adaptive leadership, cross-sector collaboration, international development and globally responsible leadership.

My grounding in science and consulting as well as the following experiences have deeply shaped my multi-disciplinary perspective :
* an intrapreneur collaborating in the establishment of an Aboriginal for-purpose-for-profit consulting business
* an alumnus of Singularity University‘s Global Solutions Program and founder of a social enterprise; and
* a Global Fellow with impact-investor Acumen .

In 2020, I have been working through how to connect all of these threads as part of the Australian National University’s 3A Institute‘s Master in Applied Cybernetics.

Seek Dare Act is an action-tank, building dignity-centred technology, research and consulting services that draws on all of these experiences to date.
