I live with my wife and daughter in North Carolina. By day, I work at a company called Salesforce. By night, I lead Carolina Forward. In between, I do other stuff too.
I studied at the University of Virginia and later Duke. I was once a Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon, and later worked in several other countries in the global development industry. Whatever I’m doing right this second, I’d probably rather be backcountry hiking.
Broadly, I am interested in economics, history, how ideas spread, good books, the Civilization and Fallout video game franchises, parenting, certain strains of politics, and powerlifting.
Some selected written work:
- Building Products for the Enterprise: Product Management in Enterprise Software, co-authored by Ben Gaines and myself, was published by O’Reilly in 2018. It remains a steady seller.
- Don’t Work “Remotely”
- Paying for the Class of 2039
- Don’t Skip Leg Day
- “Should I get an MBA?”
- Our Daily Bread: The Hourly Workers Package (Carolina Forward)
- The Road to Home: Fair and Affordable Housing for North Carolina (Carolina Forward)
