Climate change. Pandemics. Automation. Human enhancement. Artificial general intelligence. If you find the 21st century daunting, you are not alone. But success is possible…
What if we not only overcome these challenges, but build a positive legacy for humanity in the process? What would it take?
I’m the type of person that when I watch a documentary on plastics in the ocean or read about the automation of jobs I can’t not feel the need to act, to rise to the occasion. I got started as a student running as a Green Party candidate to create more political action on climate. Then in 2015 I learned about the trends in biotechnology and AI which forced me to rethink: ‘what should I be campaigning for, and why?’. So I spent four years researching a wide range of topics and 21st century trends, wrote a book and launched a nonprofit to promote discussion around these themes.
I now have a clearer understanding of what’s going on and what I think needs doing, and have started the next chapter of my career – where I’m focused on building the skills and network I need to start pushing the needle towards a positive future. I currently work for a health tech startup called League.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, let’s connect. I’m always up for meeting new people and learning new ways of thinking and doing.
