“I’m very passionate about working on social impact projects; solving ‘problems’ to make meaningful change in the world and to the lives of people who need it the most. My recent experience with frontier technologies has opened my mind to a realm of possibilities where we can drive social good through technology. Deep Knowledge Group has inspired and ignited this newfound purpose. What I do at DKG, means something. We have a shared mission-focused drive to educate and explore endless possibilities. I don’t think I could have this opportunity, and support, anywhere else.”
