You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I launched the World Bank Group's Sustainable Meeting and Events Guide and subsequent training program.

Launched a B2C mobile app that connects consumers with restaurants, cafes and grocers that buy from local and/or sustainable farms.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Looking for a partner passionate about the slow food movement, our farmers and about connecting consumers to businesses that support our local economies.

I'm comfortable working remotely - meaning no one has an office to report to. I understand developers like space, and I can respect that.

Although technical skills (JavaScript & mobile development) are a requirement, a co-founder to bounce marketing ideas, and growth and strategy concepts with would be greatly appreciated!
