I am Program Director at a Digital Democracy, a small non-profit that works with marginalized communities to use technology to defend their rights. I have lived in Peru for 7 years working with indigenous communities in the Amazon Rainforest, and am now based in San Francisco continuing to support indigenous territory mapping projects and local community monitoring of the impacts of oil and mining in the Amazon.
