I'm founder and director of the Digital Security Exchange, which helps civil society organizations connect to qualified digital security providers. I've been a digital rights advocate for more than a decade, working on various initiatives to protect the free, open, private, and secure internet.
I'm also a non-resident fellow at Stanford's Digital Civil Society Lab. Previously I was advocacy director at Access Now, campaign director at Free Press, managing editor of Change.org and associate editor of techPresident and Personal Democracy Forum.
I hold an MFA in Integrated Media Arts from Hunter College, City University of New York, where I was an early proponent and analyst of the use of emergent social platforms for political and social advocacy.
I live in Northampton, MA with my wife and three kids.
