Social Entrepreneur - CEO at CloudFactory
Internet | Nepal, NP
I have a passion for technology, business and making a difference in the world around me.
In 2008 my wife and I came to Nepal for a two week vacation and decided to stay. What started with me training four young Nepali computer engineers around one iMac on a kitchen table, has grown into a multinational company with 110 full-time staff and 2800 part-time data entry operators. CloudFactory exists to connect 1 million people in the developing world to sustainable computer work. But along the way we are raising up leaders of high character and competency to fight poverty in their own communities.
Nepal is a beautiful country filled with amazing people. I wake up every day and learn something new. We love living and raising our kids cross-culturally. As a Christian I love that CloudFactory is a practical way for me to walk out "loving God and loving others". My faith in God and passion for Jesus is what drives me to be excellent in business and find ways to make the world a better place today than it was yesterday.
