I’m part designer, part developer, part storyteller and I love to solve problems. With 10 years experience in television and feature film editorial + an MFA in Design & Technology - I'm now fully immersed in the rapidly evolving place where art, media, design and technology meet. If there's a digital tool for creating media of any type chances are pretty good that I can make something awesome with it.
I'm passionate (some say obsessed) with figuring out how to use social networking, mobile & Web technologies to solve the pressing social issues of our time. I'm particularly interested in the overlap of the Internet and American democracy. For the past four years, I've worked at the forefront of figuring out how the Internet will fulfill its imbedded promise as the great democratization tool of our age.
