Describe the Impact of a Project you’re focused on.

Humanity faces serious challenges on a global scale, including unemployment, underemployment, climate change, displaced people, and resource security. Studies show that these challenges are expected to continue to grow and that, in the future, more and more people throughout the world will be forced to compete for the basic necessities of life—food, water, and shelter. The best way to protect our families and avoid competition for resources is to start taking action today to create sustainable ways to ensure that people will be able to have their basic needs met. Thankfully, technology has advanced to such a degree that many of the global crises we face can not only be addressed, but they can be addressed in ways that have the potential to be both highly profitable and highly impactful. ArkHaven’s mission is to provide every person in the world with what they need to survive so that humanity can thrive. As a hybrid real estate development and technology company, we are building Arks, sustainable living spaces equipped with technology that provides residents with fresh food, clean water, and renewable energy. ArkHaven’s work addresses the problems of today as well as the problems of tomorrow as we work with humanity to build a sustainable future.

What results do you hope for when the impact is amplified?

By scaling the building of sustainable communities globally, we seek to help the world transition to a future where everybody has their basic needs met and humanity can thrive.

What do you have to offer as a connector? What can you give as expertise to others?

I can offer my expertise as a mentor and my opinion as an attorney as well as introductions to people in my network.
