As executive director of Akvo Foundation USA, Henry is responsible for growing Akvo’s presence in the US. Henry is also the programme manager for Akvo FLOW and is responsible for FLOW partner support, providing technical support to current users and helping us understand current and future user needs. Henry joined Akvo from the World Bank where he was a geospatial analyst overseeing R & D and implementation of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) techniques within World Bank studies and programmes. 

Henry’s been passionate for all things geographic ever since his childhood on a farm in England. This led to many adventures on geography field trips and finally to a BSc in Marine Geography from Cardiff University and an MA in Geography from the George Washington University, where he wrote his thesis on using GIS and remotely sensed data to map variabilities in health and wealth outcomes in the neighbourhoods of Accra, Ghana. Between academic tours he worked for South African National Parks as a Social Ecologist and did a stint at Foxtons in London (complete with his own Mini). Henry loves being outdoors, running and reading.
