I'm an Events Associate at the Centre for Effective Altruism. I'm part of the team that produces the EA Global conferences in San Francisco and London each year. I'm also CEA's main point of contact for EAGx organisers, providing them with advice and resources to help them run high-quality events.

In addition to my role at CEA, I also provide communications support to the Happer Lives Institute on a voluntary basis.

I practice secular Buddhism and try to meditate for at least 1 hour every day. Buddhist philosophy drives my commitment to effective altruism and doing the best I can to reduce the suffering of others.
