Richard is a social entrepreneur, political and social scientist, information geek, and changemaker. He has a background in emergency response, technology management, journalism, information media analysis and academics.

He worked in the UN Ebola crisis response, travelling to West Africa to coordinate communications technology to support the international Ebola epidemic response, working for NetHope, and worked on improving collaboration among the partner NGOs, the UN and the governments. He hopes to bring his experience to bear in facilitating collaborations among Techfugees’ community and partners in our efforts to help the Ukrainian people.

He is dedicated to improving the lives of all people, working on equality and transparency both in times of crisis and in the way our institutions organise. As a technology entrepreneur he has founded companies to develop products to counter authoritarian state control and surveillance; to counter corruption and kleptocracy; and to bring more effective strategies to counter conspiracy theories and media misinformation.
