I spent the two years after I graduated from the University of Vermont searching for work that I found meaningful. For me, that meant work that helped create a better future for our communities, our country, and our ecosystems.
That journey included working for 11 different organizations in two years, doing everything from installing rain barrels and leading ecotourism trips, to building backcountry bridges in US National Parks, to raising $1.5M for startup nonprofits and urban community development projects.
Over the years I became convinced that the phenomenon of meaningful work - of prioritizing positive impact, fulfillment, and adventure in one's work - is one that the world needs badly, and is hungry for.
After finishing graduate school in Sweden in the summer of 2011, I cofounded ReWork
, which puts talented people to work on society's most pressing challenges.
In April of 2015, I stepped down from being ReWork's CEO in order to serve as the Director of Talent Acquisition & Development for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, to build the strongest team possible to compete in the 2016 election.
I'm committed to working on projects, ventures, and policy initiatives that find ways of expanding the phenomenon of meaningful work to more people, in whatever shape that may take.
