"Change always begins with the word."Hilton Als, The New Yorker. February 21,2015
As the Founder and CEO of Nesbitt Research since 2005, I built one of the most innovative advisory teams in politics. In just three years, the firm grew to 10 staff and generated annual revenues exceeding $1,000,000.
I am fanatical about innovation in the service of client success. At Nesbitt Research, I transformed political research by integrating cloud based collaboration, communication and workflow ideas adapted from social web enterprises. Our work has won awards and been featured in the New York Times.
I have advised NGOs, labor organizations and government officials. Among them I have counseled the first openly gay U.S Representatives from New York, the first openly gay mayor of Lexington, Kentucky, the first black U.S. Representative from Nevada and the first black U.S. Senate nominee from Florida.
