My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Sydney

I am the Global Head of Telstra’s startup accelerator, muru-D. I came to the role (and Australia) with a vast and varied background spanning both startup and corporate environments. I was working most recently as the Founder & Chief Life Officer of Playful Purpose helping companies integrate meaningful philanthropy programs in their business. I was also an advisor to several startups and non-profits from San Francisco to London.

Through serendipity and running my mouth to the right people, including the Founder of SheEO, I was instrumental in launching Radical Generosity in the US, a global initiative to transform how we support, finance, and celebrate female entrepreneurs and has recently launched SheEO in Australia. Prior to that, I have nearly two decades of experience in corporate philanthropy, spending much of that time as a founding member and Vice President of All Things Fun, Meaningful & Rewarding at Salesforce.com Foundation.
