Mark Davis, a former White House speechwriter and senior director of the Washington-based White House Writers Group, has consulted with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), as well as some of the nation’s leading telecommunications, information technology, and defense-aerospace companies.
A third-generation Texan, Davis graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and worked for several years as a journalist before earning a Master’s degree in history at Stanford University. Davis served as an aide to a U.S. Senator, a Governor of California, and as a presidential speechwriter specializing in foreign policy for President George H.W. Bush. His rollicking and sometimes funny experience in politics and policymaking is recounted in Robert Schlesinger’s book, White House Ghosts.
As a White House speechwriter, Mark advised President Bush in helping him define the implications of the Cold War’s end, as well as to draft a prime-time address to a Joint Session of Congress that announced the president’s determination to lead a world coalition to evict Sadaam Hussein from Kuwait.
Davis taught at the Haas Graduate School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, and served as a think tank fellow immersed in public policy before joining with other former White House speechwriters as a consultant with the White House Writers Group.
Mark Davis is today a frequent lecturer, writer, and blogger on politics, technology, and the future.
