Taking up the fight, for equitable access to opportunity, meet our C.E.O.

As an original kid of the Internet's start-up scene, I ran a Bulletin Board Service (BBS) in middle school. All my friends and I did was chat about the girls in school and how we were going to hack the Pentagon, which quickly turned into spending too much time on the original Social Network, Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Fast track a few years and grey hairs, and I've been blessed to be part of the building and working on some incredible networks across the world, connecting continents under the sea, over deserts, and even from outer space.

My old school internet roots are firmly planted in the Internet's transformative capability. As such, I've spent my more recent life crafting technology and business architecture to take on the most significant challenge the Internet faces, equitable access. And I don't mean not just in developing nations, but right here at home in the U.S and Australia. Even here in the wealthiest countries on earth, we still have millions of people without equitable access to the opportunities the Internet can provide, so I'm making it my life's work to change that.

I won't sleep well until I do, join me and let's get this party started
