Animal Charity Evaluators
I spend most of my time building content for Animal Charity Evaluators, where I previously served as Chair of the Board of Directors. We publish a set of recommended charities along with exhaustive reviews each year in December. Our current Top Charities are Animal Equality, The Humane League, and Mercy for Animals. I encourage you to support any of these groups or other highly effective animal advocacy organizations as a donor, professional, volunteer, or in any other capacity.

I occasionally write or co-author content for other outlets, often featuring the work of these organizations or exploring important questions in effective animal advocacy and social change. I also give talks on these topics. Right now, I'm taking a break from writing articles to focus on presentations and other projects. Please reach out if you'd like to arrange a presentation, request an article, ask questions, or anything else.
