Dylan is an advocate for better stories, which he believes run the world. He has spent the last decade challenging narratives that entrench the status quo, whether in education, health, or relationships. A policy researcher by trade, he has worked to bolster evidence and garner support for landmark Philippine laws on K to 12 education and reproductive health. He continues to draw from his academic roots in the life and health sciences, and from his immersion in the diverse worlds of government, industry, academe, and development.
In addition to policy and advocacy work, Dylan mentors teams and individuals on research and learning, and on making better mistakes. He also advises startups and nonprofits on building empowered teams and running adaptive projects.
The pandemic has Dylan sheltering in his hometown at the foot of the fabled Mt. Makiling, where he gorges on feline fun, Mariah’s music, and, of course, good stories.
