About me

I am a political scientist, researcher, author, and translator. Currently, I am affiliated with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University as a Research Associate. I am also a member of NOUS (the Network for Constitutional Economics and Social Philosophy).

Over the years, I have also worked as a freelance consultant on a number of research, organizational and translation projects.

I work with my clients to understand their goals clearly and then help them to accomplish these goals. Frequently, I provide information that enables my clients to gain a better understanding of complex subjects of interest.
