HELPING PEOPLE DO COOL THINGS WITH HIGH SPEED INTERNET
I help people do awesome things with high speed internet connectivity.
Ever since I was a kid with an Apple // and a 1200 baud modem I knew I wanted to do something with this crazy new thing called the Internet. This passion carried me through a computer science degree at the University of Michigan, and when I found Internet2 it felt like home – there is a whole community of educators, researchers, and technologists out here that are doing great things by working together over the best network platform in the world.
Somewhere along the way I came to realize just how many people don’t have access to broadband at home. It’s unacceptable to me to see millions of Americans completely lacking the ability to participate in the most basic of online activities, let alone emerging technologies. This led me to become an advocate and volunteer in various community broadband efforts, and when there was an opportunity to join the NTIA to represent Michigan during this time of historic broadband funding, I jumped at it.
Feel free to reach out if we can work together in getting all Michigan residents connected with high speed internet access.
