What I do

Technology, always a driver of opportunity, power, and security, is becoming an even more pronounced determinant of the strategic environment today.  Greater numbers of scientists and engineers in the U.S. and around the world, backed by new forms of capital, open innovation communities, and the Internet, are leveraging transformational technologies in new ways. 

This flowering of innovation is opening whole new fields of human endeavor and social good.  Yet technology also has a disruptive side, altering the environment for companies and even the balance of power globally.

I help leaders navigate this brave new world, positioning organizations to harness emerging technology and networked talent while mitigating its disruptions and risks.  I also work in the technology and social good space.
