When did you do your tour of duty?

July 2015 – Aug 2016

What are you doing now?

I'm continuing to work in civic / public interest technology and innovation.

What would someone be surprised to know about you?

I'm 6'3" and terrible at all sports.

What is your biggest accomplishment to date?

Becoming a volunteer EMT; when you save one life, you save the world.

What would you tell someone who is think of joining the PIF program?

If you really give a damn about the condition of your fellow Americans, you want to spend time making a dent in large-scale problems, and you enjoy seeking out opportunity where none is immediately visible, then this program is for you.

If you couldn't be a PIF, what would you want to be?

The founder of a public interest company (in progress).

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would you meet and what one question would you ask them?

Robert Johnson: "What really happened at the crossroads?"

What do you do when you aren't changing the world?

Playing guitar, ski patrolling, and trying to meet as many beautifully unique people as I can.
