You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Ecommerce (food) • Food Delivery • Restaurant industry • Software Engineering • Strategy

Key Accomplishments

Intrapreneur best describes my previous experience. I was the "internal founder" and Chief Architect of the POS that runs Domino's Pizza today, and I built the team & technology behind Domino's eCommerce presence (a $1B/year) business (including Pizza Tracker). After Domino's, I founded AppKey as a platform to monetize mobile content via permission marketing.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I like working with extremely strong people and believe one of us is redundant if we always have the same opinion.

As an Advisor

I'm a strategic thinker who likes to really understand problems before giving advice. Quick hits are not my thing unless I already have a deep understanding of the context.
