"More collaboration, please."

I'm so excited to see citizen engagement finally getting some respect. I've been working on this end of open government since Obama claimed the term in 2009, and feel it is critical to ensuring sustainability of open government efforts.

So I run this nonprofit in DC that works on these things - I've mostly done domestic work but am starting to branch out into international as well. My interest is in citizen engagement and the necessary cultural changes that are required, both inside government as well as amongst the broader citizenry, to bring the principles of open government to fruition.

I have a young daughter, I ride my bike a lot, and I love to travel. Here's to the future!!
