It's also my job to make sure that you have the best experience using our website and other platforms.

My professional background is in academic philosophy, politicisation, human interface and online culture. I'm a bit of a futurist and I'm still amazed by the potential we all have to interact online and make some real changes in the world.

What I like most about working with ActionAid is being able to support and advocate the sterling development work being done by other teams across the world, all of us connected by the Internet and brought closer together.
