I have attended college (American University), 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 analyze, design and launch programs and processes to support 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 extensively with State Education Departments, school districts, postsecondary institutions, education associations and federal agencies in leading efforts on educational improvement and by putting the proper tools at the disposal of education practitioners and the public. 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.
My principles are such that I can promise to represent you effectively by helping to build a community that is well connected and informed about issues in a timely fashion leading to an engaged community which in turn leads to having an empowered community.
