Covid Credentials Initiative/ Linux Foundation Public Health
Ecosystems Director
For the past 15 years, I’ve been working to bring about the creation of a layer of identity for people based on open standards. I co-founded the Internet Identity Workshop in 2005 to bring together technologists who want to see decentralized identity come into being. In the fifteen years our community has been meeting, we’ve created standards being used all over the internet, like OpenID Connect and OAuth and an initiation ground for collaborations that have led to multi-million dollar projects.
I am the author of two books the Domains of Identity (2020) and A Comprehensive Guide to Self Sovereign Identity (2018).

In 2017, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Master of Science in Identity Management and Security. I am an instructor in Computer Information Systems at Merritt College in Oakland, California. In 2019, I travelled to India for two months as a New America India-US Public Interest Technology fellow to study Aadhaar their national ID system. I consult with Governments, NGO’s, Startups and Enterprises on decentralized identity technologies.
