You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Drupal

Key Accomplishments

I built SpaceShare.com [rideshares and roomshares for events] from the ground up, tech and business and ran it solo for ten years. I never want to do that again solo, so I'm on FounderDating. I was also lead dev for Vibio, we built a really nice product they never got their Series A. Along with plenty of contract jobs -- mostly Drupal. I've also nearly finished writing a book CognitivePolitics.org.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'm inspired by worthwhile (social-enterprise) projects and like to work with people inspired by more than money. I like working on a team, providing feedback, being engaged across the business, being mutually inspired to change some corner of the world for the better. I think ideas are cheap. I like getting the hard stuff done quickly, being up front.

I'm good with both sweat-equity partnership social-enterprise projects, your idea or mine as equals (I can work half-time). Or working as an employee with near-normal pay and a little equity. Pitches that are half- cash and half+ equity are confusing -- if you pitch me as your developer/CTO, please have an idea on how we could do a test project.

As an Advisor

I'm a listener, a generalist, focused on bootstraps more than big time investors. I think I'm particularly good at listening to overall business needs and helping integrate those into a technology plan, helping prioritize, adjust needs and capabilities. Also, I'm very interested in founder-dating at the bootstrap and social-enterprise level: running a carpool business, I witnessed many passionate environmentalists build our own carpool systems and accidentally compete. I'd like to help people who want to do good work get past their various founder syndromes and work together. Talk to me if you have people who should be working together who can't figure out how to negotiate an agreement to make it happen.
