LET'S DO THIS THING

Bridging the digital divide between vision and strategy.

I’ve been using digital tools and tactics to organize communities and drive campaigns since the global justice movement in 1999 onward, and I’ve never felt a stronger sense of urgency than now. The same patterns at play back then have led us to our current situation. The world is face-to-face with a three-headed monster at the intersection of runaway climate change, broad systemic racism, and staggering economic inequality. Just at the moment when we desperately need massive changes to the fundamental structure of our global society, our leaders are doubling down on the ideology of neoliberal capitalism. A whole host of toxic policies lie in wait, ready to be enacted under cover of the next shock to our system – whether it’s a natural disaster, financial crisis, or war.

We need to do more than resist: we need to put forth our own specific ideas, to counter the prevailing winds with our own clear vision of a future worth fighting for. We need to mobilize and organize – not just among those who are already active, but also among those who have been intentionally disorganized, unorganized, or excluded by our system – into vehicles where we can exercise our political power. We need bold ideas, and we need rapid response campaigns to translate them into collective action. I built this website as a quick demo – to hint at what I can do on a tight timeline. (It took one week of my spare time.) I’d love to see what we can do together – working as a team.

WHY I CARE

01

CLIMATE CHANGE DEMANDS REVOLUTION

Small steps won’t cut it. Time is up, and the dangers posed by climate change can only be addressed with immediate, large-scale collective action and a swift end to the failed neoliberal project.

WHY I CARE

02

STAGGERING WEALTH AND POWER ARE CONCENTRATED IN THE TOP 1%

The populism of the Right punches down. We need a populism of the Left that can forcefully punch upward, at the corporations and global elites who sell off our futures in exchange for extravagant wealth.

WHY I CARE

03

EMPIRE, RACISM, AND ECONOMIC INEQUALITY GO HAND IN HAND

Today’s climate refugees are tomorrow’s scapegoats. It’s not enough to simply seek inclusion for marginalized groups within an inherently unjust system. The intersecting systems of empire, race, gender, and class oppression need to be untangled in unison.

WHY I CARE

04

OUR INSTITUTIONS WILL NOT SAVE US

It’s up to us to win the world we need. Our only hope is a massive grassroots uprising demanding change at the roots of the system that brought us to this place. When the people lead, the politicians will have to follow.

MY APPROACH TO

STRATEGIC TECHNOLOGY

1. Purpose

First, why are we doing this? What’s our shared compelling vision for the future driving us to undertake this specific project?

2. Outcomes

What are the outcomes we hope to achieve? Goals should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-Focused, and Time-Bound.

3. Process

What process will get us to where we want to go? What existing models and pre-existing solutions can we use to maximize efficiency and impact?

Radical Vision + Digital Strategy

MY TOOLKIT

Drawing on more than 18 years of experience using digital tactics and tools to organize communities and campaigns, I can offer a broad range of skills to help your organization meet its goals.

Project Management

I carry projects from birth to completion, keeping track of plans, scope, requirements, timelines, costs, resources, risks, and goals.

Strategic Awareness

I'm always looking for political opportunities where grassroots and online activism can build capacity and deliver progressive victories.

Hands-On Web Design

From back-of-the-napkin sketches to custom HTML & CSS, I build websites with easy-to-use content management systems.

Database Management

I'll help fine-tune and optimize your CRM for precision targeting, peer-to-peer organizing, and ongoing evolution within your data ecosystem.

Analytics and SEO

I'll help optimize and measure every campaign's impact through traffic monitoring, segmentation, and ongoing experimentation.

User Experience & Interface Design

The best design is invisible to the user. Keep it simple with the right balance of visual hierarchy, page layout, color, and typography.

Training and Support

I'm at-ease both in front of a classroom and in direct trainings, and I can break down difficult technical subjects into simple lessons.

Municipally-Owned Fiber Internet

My high-speed home office is part of a growing network of communities taking the internet back from corporate control.

MY BAG OF TRICKS

The tools are out there. The secret is finding the right fit.
