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.
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.
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:
- Workshops (½ to 3 days)
- Research reports
Become an actor in the field
I have helped build and I am actively involved in several organizations that steer the development of digital identity and its open standards. My network spans across all actors in the field and grows alongside me. As an advisor, my impact on your startup is not only from my direct expertise but also from having those who shape the future of digital identity today at arm’s length.
