A family man. A believer in the transformational power of politics. A hands dirty practitioner with a love for good public policy. A researcher. A proponent of evidence informed policy making. A serial pusher of envelopes rarely satisfied with the status quo. A writer. A believer in the private sector as a primary catalyst for growth in developing economies. A manager. A searcher of achievable poverty alleviation strategies. Thoughts expressed here are my own. They do not represent the official views of CSIS or any other entity.
