I am a Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. My published research focuses on entrepreneurship, firm dynamics, and macroeconomics in both official and nontraditional (private sector) data.  

I currently serve as a Special Adviser to the Board.  Other past and present internal Board responsibilities have included coordinating the staff GDP forecast, tracking the manufacturing sector especially motor vehicles and aircraft, and working on various small/new business and nontraditional data projects.

I am also a member of the Conference on Research in Income and Wealth (CRIW), a Special Sworn Status (SSS) researcher at the U.S. Census Bureau, and a T1D dad.  I grew up in western Colorado.
