Since 2001 I have worked in the humanitarian aid industry.  In 2001 and 2002 I worked for Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders in both Ethiopia and South Sudan as both a Logistician and Log/Admin.  From 2003 to 2007 I worked for International Medical Corps in a variety of capacities including Logistics Officer, Site Manager, Emergency Field Coordinator, etc. in Iraq/Kuwait, Chad, Liberia and Indonesia.  From mid-2005 to early 2007 I oversaw HQ Logistics for the International Medical Corps in Santa Monica, CA.

In 2006 I relocated to the Bay, Area where I grew up, and started Humanlink, a non-profit NGO, to provide technical support to humanitarian aid organziations.  More recently I started Aid Worker Daily to highlight the tremendous amount of information that is out there that could benefit my fellow field aid workers. These days I live and work in the San Francisco/Bay Area where I run my own business – Humanitarian Advisors. My Linked In profile can found here.
