Amanda Ravenhill is skilled at solving for pattern to solve myriad of problems at once and create paradigm shifts. Her passion for global issues comes from the intersection of two forces: being a TCK (Third Culture Kid: her parents were anthropologists in Africa, where she was born), and her muse: Buckminster Fuller. She is a yogini, urban farmer, biker, and mapper who spends her summers in Maine running her own non-profit that teaches children to build traditional wooden boats.
