Every day Leslie wakes up excited by all of the ways that food connects people, whether across the world or around the corner.  Before joining FoodShare, Leslie spent most of his career working in rural community development, agriculture, and education in Southeast Asia, East Africa, and Latin America.  Leslie loves asking questions, and believes deeply in the impact research and policy can have when used effectively. He has seen these impacts working with teff crops in Ethiopia, coffee systems in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and sustainable farming training in Thailand and Indonesia. When he isn’t keeping up with emerging food policy and research, Leslie can be found exploring the city on his bicycle, cooking with whatever is in the fridge, or curled up in a hammock with a good book.
