Hi, I’m Jared!

I’ve been exploring the San Francisco Bay Area since 2015 after stints in Boston, DC, and St. Louis.

My current obsessions include Soulcycle, baking, lacrosse, IRONMAN triathlons, and a rigorous podcast-listening schedule.

I love improving organizations by designing systems, processes, and transformational initiatives.

I’m passionate about equity in education, and I believe how school systems function must be updated for an increasingly human-centered and individualized world.

I’ve been inspired by beacons of success in civic tech efforts in the UK, US Digital Service, and the City of Boston. I strive to bring improved service design and delivery to PK-12 education.

Right now, I’m working to improve how schools and districts are able to use evidence — including the science of learning and human development — to improve outcomes for students as a program officer at an educational foundation. Until recently, I served as the Department of Technology’s Chief of Staff in the San Francisco Unified School District. Previously, I’ve worked in product management for an EdTech startup, and was a founding member of the Office of Human Capital in the Boston Public Schools. I got my start in public education as a bilingual math and science teacher at the Next Step Public Charter School in Washington, DC.

I received an Ed.M. with a concentration in Mind, Brain, and Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and an A.B. from Washington University in St. Louis in Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy.
