I'm motivated by creativity. And cookies. I use data to tell stories. I work with iDE - a group that uses innovative design to develop products and services that offer life-changing value to poor, rural families. I do this because I love to travel, I get to work with smart, creative and compassionate people and, most importantly, because it really works. We need to challenge mainstream imagery and cliches, and re-imagine what poverty looks like in ddifferent parts of the world... and what we can do about it. If we are serious about tackling poverty, we need to lighten up.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
