If you want grassroots – this guy Benny is your man. He has been holding court at the Yana distribution hub in the Rockaways at 113th for Occupy Sandy for the past week, barely taking any time off. Coordinating logistics, dealing with all types of people, and making it happen. Where was the Red Cross that first week? Not there. We need to rethink how we support disasters in this country and learn from what’s working.

I like to build businesses with passionate people, in areas that can impact people's lives positively. My experiences include digital TV, online video, mobile technology, healthcare, data platforms, video production and user experience. I'm interested in continuous learning, helping early stage companies move toward a growth path, and helping people arrive at their full potential. Also love to find hidden gems, in food, music, art and anything that is worth experiencing. View all posts by Raj Amin
