You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

Co-founder/CTO, SoundTracking - a social app and passionate community of millions of users who love sharing the soundtrack to their lives with their friends and followers. SoundTracking was acquired by Rhapsody International in 2014.

Early engineer, StumbleUpon - as one of the first full-time engineering hires after the company's seed round, I was a core member of a dedicated engineering team that had to scale out of necessity as our user base grew from 1.5 MM to 5 MM during my tenure. StumbleUpon was acquired by eBay in 2007.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I take a casual approach to advising as I do most things in life. I like to call it like I see it. I will give you the skinny drawing from my past experiences as a co-founder, engineering leader and technologist who has worked in the valley for 15+ years with a focus on consumer-facing apps and services for mobile + web.
