Karma: 381

I am the Communications Manager at the Happier Lives Institute, helping to build a community of researchers, influencers, and decision-makers who use subjective well-being measures to identify the best ways to improve the lives of others.

Before that, I was part of the Events Team at the Centre for Effective Altruism, helping to produce EA Global and EAGx conferences.

I practice secular Buddhism and try to meditate for two hours each day. Buddhist philosophy drives my commitment to effective altruism and doing the best I can to reduce the suffering of others.
