I act as a hands-on, global advisor in social technology, and have a few angel-level investments. All the ventures in which I'm involved comprise an 'ecosystem' of complementary capabilities, business and civic interests.
Award-winning areas of 'expertise' span digital media, content co-creation, adaptive storytelling, applied innovation, data & analytics, as well as business intelligence, digital currencies, public policy and agile development.
