I'm a data nerd. It started when I worked at the National Security Agency where I learned cryptanalysis and network analysis. I've flown satellites and I founded my own software company. Along the way, I became an instrument rated private pilot. Since 1994, I have conducted research in how communication data can help us better manage work. That research resulted in my proposal for a new Wikimedia project. If you care to learn more about me, please see my LinkedIn profile.
