About Living on One Dollar

In 2010, four US college students set out to discover firsthand how 1.1 billion people around the world live in extreme poverty. Armed simply with the belief that understanding the reality of poverty is the first step in addressing the problem, they spent two months living on just one dollar a day in rural Guatemala. They chronicled the experience through short videos which ultimately turned into the documentary, Living on One Dollar. This fall, they are taking their film to 25 colleges and universities across the country to inspire and mobilize students and young people to start making an impact in the fight against global poverty.

About the Guests

Zach Ingrasci, Executive Director, Co-Founder: Zach’s journey to become a “disruptive storyteller” began while working for a small Mexican microfinance program. Ever since, he has continued to focus on the intersection of the creative arts, business and sustainable development. Zach’s work experience includes strategy consulting at Deloitte Consulting LLP as well as working for Freedom From Hunger on the ground in Ecuador. Please never ask Zach to sing.

Chris Temple, Executive Director, Co-Founder: Chris is an avid adventurer and big thinker. On a gap year from university, he worked for Grameen Trust to launch new microfinance organizations in New York, Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia before founding the student microfinance organization, MFI Connect. He has also worked at the advocacy and communications consulting firm, Global Health Strategies, and is now applying all his experiences to co-launch Living on One.

Hannah Gregg, Program Director, Co-Founder: Hannah joined Living on One in 2012 to bring a focus in education and a creative perspective to the team. Raised in south Minneapolis, she grew up working within its tough inner city school system on alternative approaches to learning. She continues to keep her Minnesota roots close to heart while exploring a passion for wandering foreign countries, a love of impressionist artwork, and a slight weakness for house music.

Sean Leonard, Creative Director, Co-Founder: Sean owns a 30” computer monitor that he uses to edit documentaries and short films. Sean is often quoted saying that he “loves the process of filmmaking because you seem to find yourself in crazy situations without ever asking how you got there!” If one were to read Sean’s journal, it would be full of exclamations regarding the fleetingness of ones memory; therefore attesting his desire in film’s ability to capture, document, and inspire.
