Public sector innovation. Writer. Photographer. Explorer. Tea drinker.

I research, write, and consult at the
nexus of technology and the public sector.

I speak the language of markets, government, and people. Working between industry, nonprofits and government, I work to build public/private partnerships that harness emerging technologies and innovative policy to solve the most complex public challenges.

My work fuses strengths in research, public policy, product development, and government affairs to help government and industry incubate the most promising technology and policy ideas for solving complex social problems with increasingly scarce resources.

Flexibility & experience.

I've been working to help industry, nonprofits, and government solve public challenges since 1995. I've worked with some of the most innovative technology and public institutions in the world. My experiences include government transparency, defense and public safety, and education.

My focus has been to help build campaigns, products, and organizations that solve specific public-interest issues. In earlier roles, I developed formidable product management, marketing, research, and writing skills at Fortune 1000 and entrepreneurial companies while my political radar was honed as the executive director of one of California’s fastest growing advocacy organizations, supporting entrepreneurship and innovation in California.

I've studied at the U.S. Naval War College, the Joint Forces Staff College, and Golden Gate University, focusing on public policy, international business, and public administration. In my "spare" time, I’m an avid traveler, photographer, sailor, equestrian, skier, and a wannabe gourmet cook. And yes, it’s true, I’ve been known to have an annual pass to Disneyland. I’m a proud 6th generation Californian, where my wife, Heather, and I live in Silicon Valley.
