Leigh is Director of New Media Technologies at the White House, where he oversees the development and operations of WhiteHouse.gov, We The People, and all of the White House’s Drupal-based websites and applications. His team provides a secure, stable, and scalable technical infrastructure across the White House’s web, social media, and mobile platforms, supporting the President's communications objectives. Leigh's fifteen years of experience cover all aspects of system management of high-profile online engagement platforms in both the private and public sectors, including work for Blue State Digital and MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
On May 29, the White House will welcome developers and tech experts to the White House for an all-day (civic) hackathon.
Developing APIs and soliciting valuable input from the developer community will help improve the experience of using The White House’s petitions platform and broaden the dialog that We The People represents.
We're making it easier for anyone to do their own analysis or build their own apps on top of the We the People platform with a new API.
