Having served at the departments of State and Treasury, the Senate and the White House before shifting to the private sector, he combines the perspectives of a regulator, lawyer, policymaker, builder and facilitator to drive government innovation. He helped bring blockchain microservices to the Department of Health and Human Services, robotic process automation to the IRS and communities of innovators to advance public/private collaboration across government.
