Some details about me.
I write and speak on healthcare, with a focus on health policy issues involving markets, choice, and innovation.
Early in my career I was a healthcare research specialist for a large consulting firm, working on client projects and writing white papers on technology and legislation. I also wrote articles that appeared in such publications as Baseline Magazine, hfm Magazine, KevinMD, ADVANCE for Health Information Professionals, and did media interviews for such publications as Healthcare Informatics, Health Data Management, FierceHealthIT, Becker's Hospital Review, and elsewhere.
In recent years I've become involved in academia through various forms of research, teaching, and advising. For the current academic year, I am serving on the faculty as a capstone adviser in the graduate program in public health at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI). I have also served as a teaching assistant for numerous graduate-level courses at TDI and the Tuck Business School at Dartmouth on health policy, inferential methods, and healthcare management.
Additionally, I enjoy collaborating with policy institutes and advocacy organizations with whom I have shared values and interests. I believe strongly that the best way to bring about a world in which everyone can thrive is to cultivate a free society with free markets, and that advocates of this perspective have an enormous amount of work to do to develop and communicate these ideas effectively. If you would like to work together, please get in touch.
