My background is in public policy and data science, though I love economics. I have been thinking about the issues with GDP for a long time, and a book called Sacred Economics that I read a year or so ago had a profound impact on me. I work in government consulting, and would like to make as much of an impact as I can towards the future we want to see.
I also get a bit obsessed with trash and recycling and plastic. Currently, I have an app idea to help build waste literacy and ultimately reduce our consumption and waste if anyone is interested in collaborating!
