You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

Remains to be seen: my co-founder & I have built a growing, profitable company in Boston. It's still a work in progress.

Other than that, all accomplishments are academic/technical. Building a business has made those types of achievements seem a bit dull though. Mostly they point to me being above average at applied math. So I've got that going for me...

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Divide & conquer.
