Before Huron, he served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Kingdom of Tonga, where he taught English at a primary school and co-founded a student leadership and empowerment program.
He recently worked as a consultant for the school’s Social Enterprise Accelerator Fund, where he supported the team to provide innovative and affordable medical devices to developing countries.
