Jeff is the Chief Legal Officer at Cruise. He's been Special Counsel to President Obama, U.S. Ambassador to Australia, President of the State Bar, Partner at two international law firms, Special Master in the U.S. Courts, Supreme Court clerk, professor at UC Berkeley Law, and even has a Center on Technology (and a Koala) named for him in Australia.
He was born on a U.S. Army base in Germany, raised back East, but has lived in the Bay Area ever since (except when he was in DC or serving overseas). He loves dogs and cats, obscure sports, bad movies, and most of all his wife Becky and their three kids.
He chose Cruise because he is passionate about AVs and their potential to change the world for the better, and he believes in the technology, people, values, and perspective that make Cruise so special.
