The scoop on GovFresh

Since May 1, 2009, I’ve dedicated a great deal of time and energy to GovFresh to the point it’s become a passion that has consumed me. I’ve managed to find meaning in work that matters to me.

The end of a GovFresh era

This will sound crazy coming off the heels of one of the best professional experiences I’ve had in my entire life (see manor.govfresh), but it’s time for me to change gears as far as GovFresh is concerned. For the past 15 months, this has been a civic adventure driven by pure patriotic adrenaline. It has been an amazing learning experience, and I have met the most incredible, passionate, patriotic group of people I’m proud to now call friends.

My Gov 2.0 Hero: Luke Fretwell

One of the first people that came to mind as a Gov 2.0 Hero doesn’t even work for the government. With this said, this individual has had a profound impact on government through his immense drive and passion to make the government a better place. Luke Fretwell is the creator of GovFresh, which has become a very important resource for agencies and citizens interested in how technology is reshaping government of all levels. Luke recognizes individuals making their mark in government as Gov 2.0 Heros, but I think it’s time that his efforts get recognized. Luke, thank you for being a real Gov 2.0 Hero, and inspiring me to press forward no matter how difficult the challenge may be.

GovFreshTV and me

As the newest member of the GovFresh team, I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I’m going to be working on all things related to GovFreshTV including shooting, producing, hosting, and generally running around related conferences/workshops/barcamps/etc like a madwoman, with a Flip video camera dangling off my wrist (or in front of my face)!
