You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I was asked in 2000 to create a way to match users to music. The 5-tier algorithm I created later went on to be the core that started Pandora.

In 2004, I was asked if I could help out with some open source software to demonstrate a new technology. That software went on to power all of Microsoft's blogging, images and online discussions platforms worldwide in 17 different languages and as open sourced powered millions of websites around the world.

In 2009, I was asked how to get kids into saving early. In 2012, we launched Kiboo, a Smarter Way to Bank for young adults.

Though these filled me with excitement, they were not without their challenges. I find the most rewarding accomplishments are the ones on the battlefield along with the behind-the-scenes "ah hah!" moments when a new idea pops into view that goes on to become a big hit.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Usually sit down at first for discussions to collect ideas and data - what you want to accomplish, what type of people you want to help, etc. The bigger the whiteboard the better. I usually end up being that energetic dreamer that no whiteboard is large enough and sometimes there's not enough oxygen is in the room to breath.
