Key Accomplishments

At Activision, I was backend engineer #1 for the Call of Duty site & app. I architected the Call of Duty backend that's been load tested to 1 million concurrent users with under 1.5 second latency.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Develop the product to something we're both enthusiastic with. Get clear requirements and work on rapid iterations that constantly refine the vision.

As an Advisor

I'll provide the best options I can if I have clear idea of backend functionality and usage patterns.

Sherban is an excellent engineer who has the right makeup for a startup founder - smart, thoughtful, and resourceful. He can code, yet see ... the bigger picture.
We worked together
Sherban is a skilled engineer with excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
We worked together at Gazillion Entertainment
Sherban is a creative thinker with a real knack for peeling away the layers of an idea to find the real value. We worked together as a team ... for several years designing a large systems platform, and we were only interested in the best possible solutions. Outside of work, we frequently tossed ideas back and forth for all kinds of projects and I feel he had a great ability to look at things from all angles. Not only does Sherban have the technical chops, he can recognize a good idea and move on it. Having known several other entrepreneurs in various fields, some quite well, I feel that Sherban could be very successful in a founder role.
