His pursuit of meaningful work that makes an impact took him to a primate sanctuary in Nigeria, then teaching English in Finland among other pursuits. Along the way, he leveraged his technology talents to create a text-messaging platform for non-profit organizations in developing countries. That seemingly simple act has cascaded a wave of i...
