I’m the Executive Director at Effective Giving Quest, a fundraising org at the intersection of EA and gaming. I also am an Organizer of WikiProject Effective Altruism, where we coordinate effective altruism related articles on Wikipedia, and am a moderator of r/EffectiveAltruism, the main EA subreddit with 20,000 members. Most of my history with EA is through my service at Animal Charity Evaluators from 2012–2022; I helped influence ACE’s formation in 2012 and became the 2nd paid employee in 2013 as Director of Communications. Between 2019–2022, I served as Secretary on ACE’s Board of Directors.
I’ve been involved with the EA movement since 2011, well before the phrase "effective altruism" was coined. I hope to continue being a part of the movement for many years to come.
If you have contacts in the video game or board game industry that may be highly receptive to EA, please let me know! Our mission at Effective Giving Quest is to help gaming companies, streamers, and other gaming professionals do the most good through their donations, and we would be glad to guide those in the gaming industry toward effective altruism causes.
