Monitoring and Evaluation Assistant
he/him | Based in the USA | Joined in 2024
Mike is a facilitator, evaluator, and analyst helping in the headquarters office with program evaluation. Passionate about supporting local communities to create change and tell stories of their choosing, he is excited to continue our work to transfer power to local offices and beyond to our grassroots and refugee-led partners. He loves qualitative research and evaluation design, and catalyzing connections and new ideas with meaningful gatherings of people committed to social change.
Prior to finding program evaluation, Mike has been a data systems designer, a cross-cultural teacher, and a massage therapist. His broad technical and organizational experience smooths conversations about translating work on the ground into operational systems that make sense.
Mike holds a recent MS in Research Methods with a Program Evaluation focus. This included a strong appreciation of evaluation for equity and social change, and it included extended training for a certificate in Applied Environmental Studies that he focused on climate and the US response to displacement.
Mike also stays active in social change locally, and enjoys indoor climbing near home for relaxation and health.
