United States





Happy to meet you! I’m particularly interested in future-focused technologies that have the potential to deeply change society through new markets and new products. That same interest previously brought me first to Google, where I worked on mobile partnership products, and later to the US Federal Communications Commission, where I helped craft modern public policy rules for the future of the Internet. I can usually be found in the science fiction section of my local bookstore. Email me with your favorite book recommendations!

Cleaner Teeth

On the last rainy weekend in Oxford, I was indoors. So far indoors, in fact, that I was in a windowless room. But I had barely noticed. I was dashing about a lecture hall during the Emerge conference, snapping pictures madly. I picked my way through a packed room of attendees, huddled in small groups, […]

The Supply Chain Master in Your Kitchen

“What’s the difference between your operation and a restaurant?” I ask Steve. “So, in a restaurant, they’ve got the same menu for a month. And their dishes don’t change. Say, for example, you’ve got a chicken dish with tomato. They just continuously top up their preparation. They never waste it. They never throw it away… […]

Meet Hayley, the Face of Oxford Saïd

What you immediately realise upon speaking to Hayley Simmons, Oxford Saïd’s Reception Supervisor, is that you are in the presence of an uncommonly decent human being. When I sat down with Hayley for an interview, the very first thing she told me was an astonishing tale of courage in crisis that highlighted one of her […]

Saturday Afternoon at MAO

In the weekend before the beginning of school, I’ve found myself with a couple days of leisure. I can’t get my university card until next week, so I can’t go exploring the libraries and college grounds yet. I’ve got most of my household items set up, with others on their way. I don’t have any […]
