I have spent 25+ years working on the politics of public policy. Over that time I have served in senior positions in the House and Senate, have been a consultant and lobbyist, have run and helped run organizations, and served as a Senior Adviser to the Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, a position the Commissioner created for me and to which I was appointed by President Obama. My full bio is here.
I am an Associate Professor in the School of Media and Public Affairs at The George Washington University, where I was an adjunct instructor for a number of years. I have also taught at Emerson College‘s Washington DC program, at Clemson University, at Arizona State University, and elsewhere. I have also guest lectured nationally.
I commit occasional acts of art.
