Jamie Proctor
We worked together  •  Consultant/Advisor, Video Analytics Startup (Stealth mode) and Consultant/Advisor, Mobile App Startup (Stealth Mode).
Doug has a rare combination of skills: he is hyper technical but also a wonderful communicator and listener. He has been a colleague, mento ... r and friend of mine for years and was instrumental in helping me build and sell a business, become a better leader and believe that I can accomplish anything. Doug understands tech, sales, product, business development, people and gets the "big picture". He is a born leader for all of these reasons, but the most important is that he makes everyone around him better. I would start any business with Doug.
John Potter
Chief Technology Officer, Purch. Previously Vice President of Engineering, Technorati Media.
Ryan Hunt
VP, Enterprise Architecture and Solutions, Growth Markets, Pearson. Previously Senior Director, Engineering Engagements, Lionbridge.
Having worked with and for Doug a number of times, I can honestly say he is hands down one of the most forward thinking technologists I have ... ever met who also happens to grok the humanity behind the creation and use of tech in our daily lives. He is a fantastic advisor and mentor, and I can unequivocally say anyone engaging with Doug can expect to have a high value, and positive experience.
