I am an advocate of open identity solutions for the Internet and I believe that OpenID Connect has the opportunity to be a key identity protocol for the Web.
I have a long history with OpenID, starting with AOL (my employer) being one of the first major identity providers to support OpenID 1.0. I contributed to the OpenID 2.0 specification along with a number of the OpenID 2.0 extensions. I’m now an active contributor to the OpenID Connect specifications. In addition, I have experience participating in a number of industry standards organizations (OIDF, IETF, OASIS, Kantara Initiative) working on identity related protocols and specifications.
As a member of the OpenID Foundation Board, I will work to ensure both technical excellence in the specifications and broad adoption of the OpenID protocols.
