Key Accomplishments

I have had a various roles in small and large startups in the software industry. I started in the online media sector with Netscape Netcenter and Infoseek Go.com and moved towards the enterprise space where I have been working for the past 10 years (Open Harbor, Exorbyte). I have started my career as a coder and web developer at Netscape Netcenter. I then transitioned towards product management roles and for the last 10 years I have held business development, sales and general management roles.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am very technical for a business guy but I am above all focused on focusing the team on revenue generation through a mix of direct, early and constant market engagement (customers, users, prospects, partners, analysts, and more) and of product management which optimizes the inputs of all involved (developers, customers, management, strategists, content, designers and more).

Graylan King
We worked together
Dan brings extraordinary value to his efforts and relationships. I personally have benefited a great deal by working with Dan and would jump ... at the opportunity to work with him again. He is an informed leader who posses the ability to build solid and inspired teams that really get behind a project. He has a talent for recognizing a situations value and is able to extrapolate the surrounding variables to make sound judgements. This allows Dan to both recognize an entrepreneurial opportunity as well make a judgment call regarding its validity. Should Dan decide an opportunity is worth pursuing he has all the skills, experience, fortitude and team building skills to see it through to successful fruition. Any project Dan is working on by association must be a worthy venture.

I have known and worked with Dan in the past several years and I have been extremely impressed with his drive and can-do attitude to get do whatever necessary to get the job done. I believe anybody fortunate to have him in the team will find him an invaluable leader.
