Key Accomplishments

Started as a software engineer, grew into a hands on manager/leader of people and technology. I build great teams and understand how products transition from ideas into prototypes and then into commercial products with global customers. I've worked on a lot of different technology platforms. Started with hard-core 'C' on Unix and the original OpenGL, then built .Net/C# apps and even delivered enterprise solutions combining both Ruby/Rails and ASP.Net. Currently prototyping with AngularJS and Node,js.

I've worked at big companies and small companies, but always solved the problems at hand and built the right solution. Even while at huge company like Motorola I was able to pitch a new web application idea that was directly funded by the Finance org, which solved long-standing challenges with deploying Android applications.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I've got practical experience as a software engineer and system architect and I'm really great team building. I know how to assess, hire, manage and retain great technical talent. I know what makes a really good software engineer, and that it's not just being a "rock star", it's about the team and it's combined abilities.

I'm also very experienced with customer delivery. Building a prototype is great, but engaging with customers to figure out what really needs to get built and what people will pay for is the key.
