Biography

I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in the non-profit sector for a lengthy period. I also have a developed background in economics. My research interests involve the economics of charities and the role of giving. Specifically, the role of foundations in the third sector. Having been an active volunteer, board member and a donor in a wide array of non-profitable institutions, I have been able to view the sector from different perspectives. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching Stan Wawrinka’s patented oil painting of a backhand on the tennis courts!
