Biography: 

I am the Founder and CEO of My Green World, the Creator of World of the Wild mobile game app, and the Australian Director of Sri Lankan-based NGO, Dogstar Foundation. I am a sitting member of the IUCN, a World Economic Forum ‘Global Shaper’ and a Forbes 30 Under 30 honouree. For over ten years, I have been driving positive change worldwide: creating inclusive youth education programs and technologies that increase access to wildlife and environmental conservation and sciences. My approach has been to spark curiosity among young people by creating entertaining learning technologies that are accessible to all.
