I'm a Russian-Speaking, Mexican-American, Swedish resident that works in social impact-long story! My background is in the US Congress, NGOs, Management Consulting, the UN, and more recently startups/tech. I work with individual-level empowerment because I love it, and it's so dynamic in the new era of international development.
Sweden has a massive shortage of skilled labor, so why is it deporting foreign talent for minor mistakes? Well, it's complicated! I used my own deportation (twice) as a foundation to build a rule of law self assessment on 'kompetensutvisning.' link.
I also am a Sustainability Adviser for UBI Global - mainstreaming SDGs for startups!
I started in Ukraine as an election observer in 2014 after the revolution - then consultant, then a Specialist with the UNDP. I continue to work mostly with energy efficiency issues, communications work for elections, and observation. I also have my own NGO - Yogis Utan Gränser, that brings yoga to Ukraine for free!
