About Harry

 

I’m Harry and I founded Knight Life. I’m originally from Christchurch, New Zealand but have been based in the U.K. (London and Edinburgh mainly) for the last two years working with WikiHouse Foundation, a small non-profit with a huge mission: to put the knowledge and tools to build sustainable, low-cost homes into commons where they are freely accessible to anyone, and owned by everyone. In Christchurch I gained 5 years of experience working in the social economy of a post disaster city.

During this time I became more and more interested in how we work together to create positive impact in our local towns and communities. This has led to further training with Gallup, inc. where I became a Gallup Certified StrengthsFinder coach. I’m determined to help and work alongside young startups and non-profit organisations that have radical business models and a passion for positive social change. My roots come from training in Jazz guitar and when travelling across borders I always change what I write in the ‘occupation’ section of my landing card.
