My New Position at Intellectual Ventures

As you may have seen from my twitter posts, I have moved on from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana to other business opportunities. I thank BCBSLA for all the friendships and the ability to lead their Enterprise Architecture team.

Today, I joined with a company called Intellectual Ventures based in Seattle, WA. Similar in my other roles in Enterprise Architecture, I will be leading architecture efforts for this company. Here I will be working for the CIO to engage in a number of exciting projects that I am eager to participate.

Recently, my new CEO (Nathan Myhrvold) appeared on Fareed Zakaria’s show “GPS” on CNN. It’s a great video that provides an overview into the company and about the inventions around global warming issues.

For more information on my new company go to and for more information on the inventions themselves there is a blog dedicated to our climate science inventions and it includes whitepapers and images at
