Designing systems to support solutions for planet earth’s biggest problems

I have led strategy development and operational implementation of data technologies across a range of agricultural and manufacturing sectors. The systems I have created enabled interoperable reporting spanning various CSR & ESG frameworks to increase environmental sustainability and social impact, and I have empowered organizations to efficiently collaborate with staff, farmers, and suppliers across distant, disparate locations.
