I've spent almost 40 years fighting for the underdogs. It has been an incredible privilege to be able to do this, in many countries, and through a variety of formal roles many of which I created myself. I have self-identified as a social entrepreneur since I first met Bill Drayton in 1987 and he introduced me to the concept. My roles within Ashoka have also varied over the years, including funder, volunteer, staff, and consultant. Ashoka is my spiritual home and my Hotel California (you can check out but you can never leave).
