I became the second President of the American Council on Science and Health in June of 2015. Prior to that I was the person behind the 2006 Science 2.0 movement, and before that I was an executive at three software companies. In 1987, I was commissioned as a U.S. Army Officer. I am married with children. I've also written for USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Wired, and in many more places, and I serve on the Advisory Council of the Atlantic Legal Foundation.

My first book, Science Left Behind, was the #1 bestseller in Amazon environmental policy books. Some reviews:
Wall Street Journal - “usefully revealing how pervasive scientific misinformation is in progressive arguments on organic and genetically modified foods, clean energy, nuclear waste and other matters.”
Scientific American - “...the left's sacred values seem fixated on the environment, leading to an almost religious fervor over the purity and sanctity of air, water and especially food. Try having a conversation with a liberal progressive about GMOs — genetically modified organisms — in which the words “Monsanto” and “profit” are not dropped like syllogistic bombs.”
Forbes - “on many of the most critical issues of our time, the “progressive” perspective is often rooted in out-dated, anti-empirical, junk science paradigms that threaten innovation—and are beginning to unnerve the most scientifically minded thinkers on the left."
Huntington News - "Groundbreaking…If I were teaching journalism, this is a book that I would require my students to read and absorb -- and keep for reference.”
Science Based Medicine - "pure music to the ears of science-based medicine. They agree that the anti-vaccine movement is based on outright lies, they call the Huffington Post a laughingstock of the scientific community for its endorsement of CAM, they call for the NCCAM to be abolished, [and] they explain why presenting data about relative risks rather than absolute risks is misleading."
