Dan and I worked together at WireImage and he was on our technology team. He did an amazing job for us. He help develop the site into the be ... st photo database in the world with functions that no one else had. He is incredibly technically savvy in addition to being a wonderful person. I would have him on my team again in a second.

I've known Dan for over 10 years, and worked with him at WireImage. He has the ability to synthesize unstructured ideas and understand how ... emerging technologies can be applied to find solutions.

I appreciate Dan's ability to align business goals with technology. His technical expertise allows the right set of resources with the right architecture to grow business value and product.

Mamie Kanfer Stewart
We worked together  •  Founder & CEO, Meeteor
Mamie is a quick learner, and like any good entrepreneur, has keen interests in all aspects of the business. She's even taken the initiativ ... e to learn about technology (enrolling in a hands-on javascript course) despite not being a coder, or even expecting to contribute as a coder. As a technical person helping to build her vision, I appreciate that effort very much. Her ability to understand and adopt agile processes has also made the dev process very smooth for us. She has the right balance of drive and the understanding of how to utilize limited resources.

Jeff Vespa
We worked together  •  Founder and CEO, Creative Director, Verge and Co-Founder, Photographer, WireImage.
Jeff already is already a proven, successful, serial entrepreneur. I, in technology, worked with Jeff at WireImage and Getty Images. Durin ... g that time, and since then, he has developed multiple ways to create businesses around and beyond his skills as one of the world's top entertainment photographers. His contacts alone would make him a valuable asset to anyone starting or growing a business venture.

Paul Donohue
We worked together  •  New Media Entrepreneur, Private. Previously CTO & Co-Founder, MediaVast. NYU grad.
Paul's ability to create and execute on an entrepreneurial vision has brought him great success. I had the privilege to work for Paul for 7 ... years at MediaVast (WireImage) where he was co-founder and CTO. He built a flexible and capable technology department from the ground up, while instilling a unique and encouraging team culture. His analytical, technical, and business acumen make him a leader to emulate and an advisor to desire.

Michael has a talent and passion for software engineering. He is always on top of the latest technologies and understands their proper appl ... ications in the business world. A consummate student, who will then lead the team by teaching. I've worked closely with Mike in both small and larger teams. He is always the go-to person for technical expertise and leadership.
