My New Excellent Adventure…

The great Maya Angelou once said, “Be certain that you do not die without having done something wonderful for humanity.”

I have tried throughout my life – with varying degrees of success – to make a difference in the world in my spare time, but have long hoped and intended to do so full-time. With this in mind, I am beyond thrilled to announce that I have joined an amazing organization called Viamo.

Viamo’s tagline is “a global social enterprise improving lives via mobile” – the website explains it much better than I can. Viamo is helping people (primarily in Africa and South Asia) who don’t have computers, WiFi or smartphones get access to information that positively impacts their lives. The website shares some amazing stories of the impact that Viamo has made. For context, nearly 3 billion people in the world have never used the internet, according to the United Nations.

I have joined Viamo as the Vice President of Engineering and have spent the last two days trying to learn everything I can. After those two days, I am even more excited about being here than I was beforehand (and those close to me can tell you that I was really, really excited ). I am humbled to be part of a great team of people who have already been on this mission for many years. I hope to bring some of my experience to help the mission scale further.

Many thanks to the Viamo team for trusting me to join in their important work.
