Chris Monaghan

Secretary // Board of Directors

“When people have knowledge and tools, they become the architect of their own progress. When communities have support to build capacity and utilize technology, they become effective civic organizations in their own right.”

Chris grew up near New York City with a passion for invention and education. He has an academic background in international politics and environmental policy. Through many experiences working with startups and social businesses, Chris came to believe in the fulfillment and effectiveness of approaching systems change through science and technology rather than through politics and policy.

Chris has been involved with Metabolic Foundation since its beginning. He serves as the Secretary on the Board of Directors, and guides the foundation with his experience in strategy and networking.
