Employment history

I love working with others to navigate complexity; exploring how people interact with the forces shaping their societies, and contributing to things becoming better. I have over 20 years of work experience in the process of social change, in Australia and internationally, including for DFAT/AusAID and NGOs. This includes roles as the Head of the Australian Aid Program in Nepal, Director of the Governance Advisory Section in DFAT, and Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor in Cambodia. I have managed education, livelihoods, humanitarian response, governance and climate change programs and have experience in design, evaluation, and advisory services.
