Lee Brenner has spent most of his career at the intersection of technology, public policy, and storytelling. As a digital media, communications, and marketing strategy entrepreneur, with a specialty in how technology, social news, and online platforms are changing traditional communications, journalism & politics, he has worked on & led marketing, partnerships & storytelling teams within the civic technology space, has worked on advancing monetization concepts for digital news platforms and focused outreach toward traditionally hard-to-reach demographics.

With a desire to use technology for social good, whether in government, civil society, or non-profits, Lee has tried to maintain that integrity during his career.
