As political director he spearheaded multiple efforts, from getting Bob Barr defeated in his re-election bid in 2002, attended protests, organized campus organizations, to providing a Libertarian Party presence at multiple anti-War on Drugs events.

He also was involved with various partisan and non-partisan groups and organizations, such as the Committee for Libertarian Majority and The November Coalition.
