I use data to reimagine how we understand the world

Based in Washington, DC, I founded my first internet startup the year after the Mosaic web browser debuted, while still in eighth grade, and have spent the last 20 years working to reimagine how we use data to understand the world around us at scales and in ways never before imagined. One of Foreign Policy Magazine's Top 100 Global Thinkers of 2013 and a 2015-2016 Google Developer Expert for Google Cloud Platform, I am a Senior Fellow at the George Washington University Center for Cyber & Homeland Security. From 2013-2014 I was the Yahoo! Fellow in Residence of International Values, Communications Technology & the Global Internet at Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, where I was also adjunct faculty. From 2014-2015 I was a Council Member of the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on the Future of Government. My work has appeared in the presses of over 100 nations.
