Welcome to Freedthinker

I’ve had an unusual career trajectory. Or so many people tell me. I started off as a journalist, then worked in policy and politics (both as a speechwriter and policy analyst), did a stint at the United Nations in-between, then went into the world of security and intelligence, co-authored a New York Times bestseller, and now I’m in the technology and startup space. 

My plan for this blog is to both share lessons I’ve learned along the way and offer ideas and reflections on the present and future. Comments — public and private – are very much welcomed, and if you can convince me to see things otherwise (keeping Churchill’s “A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject” in mind)  I’ll be grateful.
