About Me


I see my life as one of service. After undergraduate studies I served for three years in the US Peace Corps in the Philippines, where I learned about community development, grassroots organizing, and humble and optimistic determination. I've been the Executive Director of Health Access Connect since 2014.


I'm originally from Tampa, Florida USA. I have a BS in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from Tulane University and an MS in Conservation Biology & Sustainable Development from University of Wisconsin-Madison, plus additional PhD coursework in Geography. I'm married to the intelligent, talented, and exceedingly patient Nancy Rydberg.

Health Access Connect

I am the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Health Access Connect, a non-profit that links Ugandans living in remote areas with healthcare resources. Here's a short video explanation of how we use motorcycles to connect people with healthcare:

The Kasekulo welcoming committee loves greeting new arrivals.


I like designing websites. I have developed websites for organizations that I work for and ones that I was affiliated with in some way. I enjoy the challenge of designing a website that a) will present a clear, concise picture of what people want to communicate and b) will continue to be used and edited, even by people who don't consider themselves "tech savvy."

I am versed in Wordpress, PHP, HTML, and CSS. Wordpress allows me to develop dynamic, multifunctional websites that are easy for many people to use. My major contribution to building websites working with clients to find a clear, simple message and presenting that message in the website.

With my friend "Mpola Mpola" we quickly get down to business: motorcycles and healthcare.
