I am a technology and policy professional based in Toronto, Canada. If I had to distill my particular talents within the constraints of a twitter update it would look something like this:
I solve problems. With research, observation, analysis and insight I help you figure out how to best use tech. Simple tenacity gets it done.
That about sums it up. Problems annoy me and I can’t help but try to figure out how to fix them – results matter, not egos or established dogma.
I work at the intersection of technology and public interest, looking for ways to apply leverage to complex systems in order to effect positive change.
Often this means using organizational momentum, open systems techniques, and bureaucratic ju-jitsu to get the work done. I’m a technology-pragmatist, neither a breathless optimist nor senseless pessimist, technologies are tools to be used when and where they help accomplish the goal.
