The Author

My name is Brian.

I am a Californian – born and raised and a public school kid for most of my life.

You can read the rest of my job history here.

This blog is about two things:

  1. Leadership: At every step of my career I felt completely underprepared. This is norm for most leaders, especially those in the public sector (e.g. government agencies and nonprofits).  This blog is a place for me to share my leadership learnings, thoughts, and reflections.
  2. Policy: Public sector leadership is about dealing with policy. The job often centers on trying to make good policy, deal with crappy policy, or or some point in between. This blog is a place for me to talk about the policies that impact my work and my community.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope I you can find something of use to you here that helps you do what you do in the world a bit better. If you’d like to contact me I can be reached at leadershipforgood[at] gmail [dot] com.
