Leadership and Board
The leadership team and board helps manage DSO.
Anthony is a lead technologist at Booz Allen Hamilton with a background in information systems and software development. He is currently the CIO of DSO and an engagement lead on the DC DSO team. As a DSO member, Anthony appreciates the opportunity to use technology to solve problems for a variety of non profits as well as the opportunity to mentor motivated students. He is interested in the areas of the intersection of aid, education, and technology.
Saurabh is DSO’s Co-Founder. He is currently a consultant at McKinsey & Company & holds a MBA from MIT Sloan & BS in Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon. He is very passionate about education, tech for development, human empowerment, and overall sustainability. He is also a sports junkie. He believes there is a major need for structured volunteer crowdsourcing of talent from universities and companies & DSO is a pioneer for a future model allowing volunteers to tackle some of the world's most challenging problems while accelerating their professional development.
Trisha is an alum of the CMU Computer Science program and currently works at Pinterest as a Software Engineer. Her favorite part about working for DSO outside of her job would be both learning skills that have unexpectedly helped her grow at work, and being able to use her free time in a meaningful way she’d never really previously considered.
Ayan is the Chairman of the Board.
Diana is a CMU graduate from the MS and BS program in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Currently she is working at Intel’s executive office for the Chief of Product. She has been involved in DSO since its inception because she believes in DSO’s mission, which also links to her personal story of growing up in Latin America. She is currently a member of the board.
Edwin was previously DSO’s CEO and is currently working on a new start-up in Hong Kong, and is also a member of the DSO board. Volunteering and giving back has always been a large part of his life. Part of this is because of his high school’s (Exeter) emphasis on service and because he has always felt unduly privileged. Another part is more selfish: doing things for others can spur far greater accomplishments than selfish motives; He's learned an incredible amount from all his volunteerism; it adds an additional dimension to his life that would feel one-sided without.
Josh, currently a member of the board, previously lead DSO’s Seattle branch as the managing director and also looked over DSO expenses as the treasurer. Growing undergraduate students through nonprofit consulting experience has long been Josh’s passion since he first tried it as a college sophomore. Josh is focused on scaling DSO into a community of passionate and skilled friends who solve business, technology, and organizational effectiveness challenges for nonprofit organizations around the world.
