I’m a social entrepreneur using technology and new business methods to reduce poverty and promote social justice. Currently, I’m Founder and CEO at Samasource, a non-profit business that connects people living in poverty to microwork — small, computer-based tasks that build skills and generate life-changing income, now part of the broader field of impact sourcing. In 2011, I cofounded Samahope, a crowdfunding site for medical treatments in developing countries advised by the cofounders of Kiva. Samasource and Samahope have been featured widely in publications including The New York Times, CNN, Forbes, and Fast Company.
When I’m not working on Sama ventures, I lend my time as a board member to CARE USA, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty.
