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.
