Meet the team

We’re a team that’s passionate about making California a better place for everyone.

Office of Data & Innovation (ODI) staff have backgrounds in:

  • Tech
  • Design
  • Data
  • Policy
  • Strategy
  • Analytics
  • Research

We’re longtime public servants, entrepreneurs, and private sector veterans. Some of us never even thought of ourselves as “tech people” until we joined ODI. We come from all over California (and work all over too–we’re all remote).

Our diverse experiences help us explore the intricacies of state services and programs. We identify and solve problems through empathy, curiosity, data, and technology.
