Key Accomplishments

I worked at UUNET in the mid-late 90s, building the commercial Internet by bringing both small
businesses and large companies online, and provided technical training to regional Asia Pacific
sales offices. At Into Networks, I was responsible for building out their software delivery over broadband service by extending their reach beyond local Cable providers, negotiating deals with both InterNap and Akamai for colocation space and content caching, in order to launch publicly available services in the US and Europe.

At Permabit, I helped a newly funded startup with its first customer demo of a digitally secure storage array, developed what would become the basis for their QA processes, and was an integration expert for their first dozen customers. I took Growing Energy Labs, a pre-funded startup, through a Cleantech Open business accelerator competition. For Jet Messaging Technologies, I have provided marketing communications and product evangelism for their XML development libraries.

At ITA Software, I was able to combine my love of travel with my technical skills, assisting several European airlines and US-based OTAs in launching new air fare shopping websites. As a Partner Technical Specialist at Travelport, I am a technical sales manager, developer advocate, and product evangelist for Travelport's APIs and SDKs, enabling software developers to market travel applications to thousands of travel agencies worldwide through the Travelport Developer Network.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I enjoy finding creative solutions to interesting problems, and I value discussions around innovative products that bring positive benefits to the world.

As an Advisor

Fostering productive collaboration in support of innovative products and services is my greatest
strength, and I have a strong delivery focus gained from 25 years of managing integration
projects. For much of that time, I have acted as the senior systems support for internal and
external software development engineers. I am an effective verbal and written communicator,
comfortable presenting in any situation, and I bring excellent relationship building skills and a
good understanding of different personalities and how to work with them in a successful global
organization.

I can meet in person in the Bay Area, or via Skype.
