For the past 18 years, I have helped shift data ownership and digital identity management back to Internet users.
I have written several books on digital identity that demystify the field and help newcomers become active contributors. I have been a key builder and supporter of the global community of digital identity architects, gathering network and cross-field expertise along the way. I have correctly predicted the development of digital identity infrastructures and continue to be forward-looking in my work.
I co-created the GoodTech.Wiki
Several companies pay me every month so I can focus on community leadership. If I find more support I can do more of this work:
- Co-Chair of the Secure Data Store Working Group at DIF/CCG.
- Co-Chair of the Interoperability Working Group at DIF.
If your company wants to support this work please reach out OR contribute on my Patreaon.
Become an actor in the field
I have a practice dedicated to helping those new to the industry get a rapid start.
I have helped build and I am actively involved in several organizations that steer the development of digital identity and its open standards. I sit on the advisory boards of several startups and organizations.
Groups I advise
Projects, reports, and workshops to get you up to speed
If digital identity management is a hurdle for your company, I can turn it into a key asset.
I am available for both executive-level and enterprise-wide consulting.
Bring eighteen years of industry knowledge to your company through:

Keynotes and custom workshops that empower attendees
I have shaped the infrastructure of user-centric identity standards since its early days, from OpenID to blockchain technologies.
I tailor my keynotes for every audience. My two decades of experience means attendees can understand digital identity in its historical context with a concrete grasp on its future.
