Lately he has been working in the frontier and emerging markets of sub-Saharan Africa after completing a transformative fellowship in 2018 with the Uniterra Program, where he served as an advisor to Malawi's largest microfinance company. Since then, he has administered an African youth entrepreneurship incubation fund, and started an investment firm that is helping grow access to household solar power in Malawi.
