I attended American University and have worked and lived in DC and the local area for the past 40+ years. My wife Ruth and I have lived on Chevy Chase Parkway since December 2003.
I currently have an education research consulting business. In this role I help clients with strategic planning and data-driven decision-making to stimulate organizational dynamics and influence scales of effectiveness in support of education improvement through data and research priorities. Prior to this I worked 30 years for the U.S. Department of Education. My last position there was as the first Chief Information Technology Officer at the Institute of Education Sciences. I continue to work with agencies, associations, State Education Departments, school districts, and postsecondary institutions, helping to design research approaches while putting the proper data tools at their disposal. Most recently I have also served as a past-President of the DC Metro Celiac Organization and as a member of the American University Alumni Board.
I promise to represent you effectively by helping to build an engaged community that is well connected and informed about issues in a timely fashion which in turn will lead to having an empowered community.
