I split my time between a number of projects that mostly mix technology and civic engagement. My real work includes:

Reshaping Congress by empowering small dollar donors to make contributions based on the outcome of votes in Congress. Launched in 2015.
Plus various consulting, which includes:
Structural analysis software for bridges and earthquake engineering.
