APIAHF
Director of Strategy & Design

Ben is the director of strategy & design at APIAHF’s Capacity for Health project. In his role, he experiments with fun ideas in the marathon-like world of programmatic strategy. Ben leans into his activator strength to cultivate solutions for complex challenges.

Ben is a “leadership pipeline baby.” He is among countless emerging non-profit leaders–who like them–rapidly moved up the organizational leadership ladder within a span of a few years. He’s also obsessed with reality competition television and enjoys movies, indoor cycling, yoga, and happy hour.

“Health Forum encourages me to imagine the future and experiment with ways to get there. This is inspiring to me because I know that without the courage to imagine, I cannot make the imagined, real. Let’s courageously imagine a future of health equity, together!”
