Experience

I have worked in the web technologies field since 1999. My academic training, however, is in economics and public policy. As a result, I offer a combination of technology expertise and substantive knowledge about a variety of public policy and social issues, providing a unique service to nonprofit organizations, advocacy groups, think tanks, and foundations that have missions focused on improving society.

Throughout my career I have maintained a close connection to the nonprofit and social sectors. I previously served in an executive leadership role for a federally-funded, national technical assistance center; was a founding Board Member and treasurer of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Washington DC (YNPNdc); served on the Alumni Board of Governors of the University of Michigan's Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy; and worked with the American Institutes for Research for 10 years, a nonprofit social science and behavioral research organization.
