Hello! My name is Lawrence—I’m a civic geek, marketer, musician, and futurist dedicated to the well-being of my fellow crew members on Spaceship Earth. I co-founded the democracy and technology community CivicMakers, and am a product manager at govtech leader Accela, formerly of Change.org and SF Gov.

You’re in the right place to read about me or my thoughts, listen to my music, or just say hello.
