I am profoundly impatient.

The child in Cambodia or the cyclone victim in Madagascar doesn't have time for us to wordsmith our mission statements or waste time with lackluster fundraising efforts. We have a moral obligation to be extremely efficient and effective at what we do, right this minute.

My greatest joys are my two extraordinary young daughters and one extraordinary economist.
