Jeffery (“Jeff”) Wright has been a professional humanitarian since the early 1990s. Since that time he has been involved as a front-line practitioner in many of the high-profile emergency and humanitarian responses that most Western audiences would have heard of (and perhaps a few that Western audiences would not have heard of). Apart from a brief detour as Country Director for an INGO development portfolio, his career has been entirely focused on humanitarian and emergency response. He holds a Master’s Degree in cultural anthropology. Jeff got his start in Southeast Asia, and speaks Vietnamese and Thai. He currently lives in western Washington with his family and works for World Vision International as a Senior Humanitarian Advisor.
