Hello and Welcome!!
WHO I AM
Yeah that's me.
I like to do cool things.
What gets me out of bed in the morning are the people that make the world move. I want to help them move it. Some folks think I know things about emerging technology (computing, robotics, nano, genetics), internet culture, big data, digital currencies, identity, social data, gaming, and crowdsourcing and sometimes ask me to talk about them. I currently lead Innovation at Thomson Reuters Special Services. I also serve as the Manager of Innovation for Thomson Reuters Government. Before I came to Thomson Reuters, I did lots of other stuff.
WHAT I DO
I'm on a mission to solve problems through technology, data science, gaming, collective intelligence, social data, virtual environments, digital currencies, and mobile applications.
