Workman, founder of the online water savings trading platform, AquaShares, is a global leader in the quiet
power and equitable design of conservation markets. He wrote the award-winning “Heart of Dryness: How the Last
Bushmen Can Help Us Endure the Coming Age of Permanent Drought,” studied at Yale & Oxford, and taught at
Wesleyan & Whitman colleges, but his real education came blowing up dams, releasing wolves, restoring wildland fires,
guiding safaris, smuggling water to dissidents, breaking down in Africa’s Kalahari Desert, and becoming a dad.
