FREE PROBLEM SOLVING
At SXSW 2013, a group of friends and I created a pop-up "Free Problem Solving" stand where we solved people's problems. It went viral.
As part of a large community event, I led an initiative to have 1,500 people "donate" their calories, then led on-the-ground work in Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Sudan, and D.R. Congo.
I co-founded a social tech venture called WishVast, focused on quantifying social capital and facilitating trust among farmers and ad-hoc laborers in sub-Saharan Africa.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH IDEA PROTECTION
In an effort to try to create a nurturing culture where people embrace and support new ideas, we defined the "villain" that kills ideas, and set up a "Neighborhood Watch" to facilitate supportive behavior.
ORGANIZATIONAL FIRST-AID KITS
Often leaders don't know the first step to take to "drive a culture of innovation" so we created Organizational First-Aid kits that included materials to walk them through the journey of how to start a transformation.
COUNCIL FOR HOPE & HEALING
In 2012, I led an art-contest-turned-non-profit focus on bringing together the State College, PA community to drive awareness of and support for victims of sexual violence.

THE FUTURE WAITS FOR NO ONE PROVOCATION
Sometimes the first step to compel a community to act is to provoke people and get people to take a step back and re-orient their mind. This provocation piece was for that purpose.
CULTURE CARRIERS PROGRAM
In order to drive cultural change in a large organization, often one of the best ways is to find people who are carriers of the target state culture and amplify and support their abilities to up-skill others. This program makes that happen.
