Toothman recently returned to NASA Ames Research Center after a two year period working with Stanford University and consulting with a variety of San Francisco based startup companies.  In his current role as Web Strategist at NASA Ames Research Center, he is developing a holistic strategic roadmap for the role of the web at Ames.  This “strategic mashup“ integrates elements of Gov 2.0, Open Gov, social media, cloud computing, enterprise 2.0 and similar edgework concepts.  This effort builds upon the role he held from 2001 to 2007. During this time, he held the position of Web Services Manager at NASA Ames Research Center, implementing numerous open source software solutions and web applications in addition to evangelizing and integrating web standards within software development teams.

When not online, he can be found spending time with his family, experiencing the great outdoors of Northern California, and exploring his love for black-and-white photography.
