Born and raised in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, just a stone's throw away from the nation's capital, I am now living with my wife halfway across the world in Bangkok, Thailand.
I am passionate about all things public health from health behavior and education to health policy to health data and analysis. Through all of this, I am particularly driven by the essential role health equity and social justice plays in our society.
In my free time I enjoy hiking and bike rides, playing soccer/football, tennis, and board games, and traveling the world exploring new cultures and natural sights.
My Latest Projects
Thailand National Health Foundation
I lead strategic planning, external relationship building, and management efforts at the Thailand National Health Foundation, with the aim of strengthening health and public health systems through knowledge sharing and strategic collaboration.

The Equity Initiative
I work on a range of tasks and projects for the Equity Initiative (EI), a regional program funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies and China Medical Board Foundation to nurture the development of a new generation and network of over 500 health equity leaders in Southeast Asia and China. I also represent EI on an Atlantic Fellows Impact, Monitoring & Evaluation peer group, a global program comprised of seven regional fellowship initiatives focused on advancing fairer, healthier, more inclusive societies.
The United Nations
I'm working with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and regional partners to develop a policy guidebook on the innovative use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to support older persons managing chronic, non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
The publication date is still TBD, but I will link to it here when available.
