Student of
human  behavior. 

I believe that small groups of creative and dedicated people regularly change the world. I seek to work with and empower others to help make our communities freer and safer in a complex, coercive, and sometimes violent world. I have served in war and traveled the world, studied Economics human behavior, and worked at the pinnacles of power in the U.S. government, in industry, and academia. 

I co-founded two AI companies when I saw an opportunity join behavioral science with computer science to empower those on the front lines of combatting coercion, fraud, and violence in the military, law enforcement, and in financial institutions. 

I love to lecture, write, and engage with interesting people.
