Now more than ever before we have the means to measure many, many things. The problem is how to make sense of all that information; how to cut through the noise to what’s really important. Fortunately, that’s exactly the kind of challenge I love.
Using systems analysis, I work with key stakeholders to identify the metrics necessary to understand a given problem, then to build the tools needed to parse, track, and display the data needed for informed decision-making. I’ve worked with national retailers to develop strategy, with governments to develop policy and track implementation, and with nonprofits to assess program participation and impact.
In 2015 I launched VT Dinners (L3C), a healthy locally-sourced frozen meals business dedicated to addressing three of the systemic barriers to eating locally: cost, limited seasonal availability, and lack of time/knowledge to prepare nightly meals from scratch. After my family's move to Boston I handed off VT Dinners to a local partner. I researched local food processing in New England as an associate at Farm to Institution New England (FINE) before landing at CommonWealth Kitchen in early 2017, where I’m now the resident ‘numbers guy’ coaching member businesses and handling finance and biz ops for the organization.
I'm passionate about sustainability, innovation, and the power of a new way of doing business to change the world. If you are too and want to work together, hit me up!
