You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

The mobile opportunity for the iPhone was too great to resist; hence, I returned to technology entrepreneurship in 2009. My background in software strategy and software and hardware development is standing me in good stead during this transition.

Most recently, I was a technology strategist for IBM Software Group. Where I tracked Apple and web standards. I helped craft several strategic efforts including the extraction of Mozilla as a stand alone entity from Netscape.

Before then I was a developer of acceleration hardware for the Mac platform. Before that I developed some of the first scientific visualization software for Mac.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring a passion for building visualization products and the company to deliver them. My mobile app development, data visualization and IBM strategy/technical experiences provide the technical foundation for the business. My strategy savvy also will help keep us from going down unproductive business and technical paths.

I list Co-founder first on my business card. Why? While one person must take responsibility for the firm, it is actually animated by a team of complementary individuals. I bring the self-knowledge of my limitations and why I need true co-founders to succeed.

As an Advisor

I'm a mono-tasking advisor. You come to me to discuss technical architecture and how it affects your business in depth.
