Bio

Interdisciplinary researcher, communications professional, and manager, with a history of entrepreneurship. I have held positions in multiple parts of the United States government (including White House), nonprofits (policy analysis, management, fundraising, campaigning) and private companies (management, consulting, sales, technical analysis), and worked within the United Nations system. I have a strong set of technology skills and learn computer & foreign languages quickly. I am experienced in quantitative analysis, project and personnel management and working with senior corporate and U.S./foreign government officials. I am a seasoned communicator, with experience in speechwriting, media relations and copyediting. I have delivered hundreds of public speaking & technical presentations, interviews (newspaper, magazine, radio, podcasts, online, TV), and publications (book chapter, academic papers (including highly cited), magazine articles). I have served on ~10 boards of directors and chaired 6, and volunteered extensively on political campaigns. I am a veteran of the U.S. Army.

How others can help me

I am looking for opportunities in AI safety/alignment and existential risk reduction, but also open to other opportunities.

EA Dedicates

It seems like another value of non-dedicates is that they can help communicate EA to people who might not be exposed to it from dedicates, or who might not be receptive to EA messages coming from dedicates. Non-dedicates may have relationships, credibility and knowledge in non-EA spaces that gives them a measure of impact that dedicates won't have. That seems  useful for spreading EA's reach, and, hopefully, impact.

Open Thread: June — September 2022

Hello! I'm Kyle, based in Pittsburgh, U.S.A. I am an interdisciplinary researcher and communications professional, also with significant experience in United States and United Nations policy. I am only a few months old to the EA community. However, I have been working for most of my career so far in EA-adjacent efforts in climate change. I currently work for myself in that field. But, in conjunction with career counseling with 80,000 Hours and others, I am job hunting for an explicitly EA position, ideally in AI safety/alignment. I would love to connect with more people in this community! You can find my LinkedIn, professional website, and other contact info in my profile.
