CEO, Kindara

Entrepreneur, blogger, inventor, musician currently living in Boulder Colorado. I am currently working on building <a href="" rel="nofollow">Kindara</a>. We're accomplishing a positive social mission while creating beautiful and useful products that help women meet their health goals. I've known from a young age that I'd be an entrepreneur, and even though it's maddeningly hard sometimes, I love the process and thrive on the challenge. I'm becoming certain I'll be doing startups for the next several decades. <br> <br> Before Kindara, I co-founded Lumetro (an online lighting distributor) and acted as director of sustainability at Watershed Technologies. I am a graduate of <a href="" rel="nofollow">HAXLR8R</a>, <a href="" rel="nofollow">Founder Institute</a>, the <a href="" rel="nofollow">Landmark Education</a> Curriculum for Living, and McGill University, where I studied Mechanical Engineering and Economics. I have a passion for new technology, social and cultural evolution and activism, and entrepreneurship. <br> <br> From 2001 - 2003 I designed, built, and tested the <a href="" rel="nofollow">iSun solar car</a>. In 2003 I raced the car from Chicago to Los Angeles in the 2003 American Solar Challenge. <br> <br> I love music (EDM especially), Burning Man, quantified self, TED, self-development, sexuality, dancing, and things that put a dent in the universe and move the human race forward. I blog at <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>

Talking About Sex Is Easier in Canada Than It Is in the U.S.

Sadly, by addressing their reproductive health decisions openly, American women still run social, civil, and human rights risks that Canadian women no longer need to worry about.
