About this Blog

The purpose of this blog is to develop a new theory of government based on complexity science and neuroscience. I hope to publish a book on the new theory by the end of 2013 and thus many of the postings will be sections of chapters. Other postings will be my commentary on the latest news and discoveries that have some impact on my proposed theory. I invite your comments and suggestions as the new theory evolves.

About the Author

I have a lifelong interest in government and politics. I started in government as an intern in a public defender's office and was an environmental paralegal for the Kentucky Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet. In 1995, I moved to Washington, DC and received a Master's in Political Management from George Washington University. From 1997 to 1999, I was a Presidential Management Fellow at the U.S. Social Security Administration and the U.S. General Services Administration. Between 2000 and 2009, I received an MBA in Project Management (Jones International University) and a PhD in Public Policy and Management (Walden University). In 2008, I returned to the Federal government as a Human Resources Specialist at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). I now work as a Program Analyst for OPM.

I also teach for the University of Maryland (College Park) and the University of Louisville (Kentucky). Current courses are: Communication in Project Management, Introduction to Communication Technology, Website Development, and Political Communication.
