Last Friday, I was privileged to present with Stephen Goldsmith from Harvard Kennedy School at the CIO Summit, a part of the #NACoAnn conference in Long Beach.
“Making government work better.” That theme carried through my entire South by Southwest (#SXSW) 2016 experience last week. I’ve attended my fair share of SXSWs, and this year had the biggest buzz to date for improving government services and elevating the right technology to do it.

For the past three years I led government relations for Code for America. In my role, I had the good fortune to travel around the U.S. talking to hundreds of government leaders about 21st Century Digital Government. I also interacted with and mentored dozens of civic and govtech startups through CfAs Accelerator and Incubator while helping public sector agencies understand the benefits of partnering with these new, innovative companies to make government work better.
