I am the president and CEO of Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRI), where I help organizations prepare for and recover from disasters both natural and manmade. Through DRI and as an adjunct professor at New York University, I have worked with the public, private and nonprofit sectors across five continents to promote resilience and sustainability. I have traveled to and given speeches on crisis management and business risk in 45-plus countries, have appeared on Bloomberg, MSNBC and Fox, and served as an expert source for Associated Press, USA Today, LA Times, Conde Nast Traveler, Quartz and more. I actively seek exciting challenges and explore opportunities posed by new ideas and disruptive technologies. On a personal note, I’m a third-culture kid, which has made me adaptable to change and complexity, as well as an avid reader, which helps me process the world with perspective and humor.
