Selected Media and Talks:

I have consulted on a variety of public and private sector projects related to internet policy.
Recently, I consulted on proposed legislation, the Banning Surveillance Advertising Act, introduced by Congresswomen Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ).
I have also provided feedback for Open Markets Institute, among other organizations.
