My favorite thing in the world is a great adventure, whether it be a week-long backpacking trek or the complex work of building a company. To me, they go hand in hand. When I'm not working with my team in New York City, you'll find me exploring some remote wilderness spot.
I started ReWork after years of searching for meaningful work, a journey that lasted from my college graduation in 2008 until the summer of 2011 when I attended the Unreasonable Institute and had the details of our company vision come into focus. My journey has involved all sorts of jobs - from building rain barrels to installing energy-efficient insulation in homes, to leading backcountry trail crews in US national parks and ecotourism trips to Latin America, to securing $1.5M+ in funding for nonprofits - and showed me how difficult yet worthwhile the pursuit of meaningful work is.
ReWork is my way of making that pursuit easier for everyone else.
My team and I believe that the world is hungry for more meaningful work, and there's never been a better time for that to become the prevailing paradigm through which people view their careers.
