Key Accomplishments

I am a veteran of multiple start-ups and am familiar with the good, bad and the ugly of such ventures. On the programming side of things I am well versed at developing systems that perform and scale as well as the lead the development teams. Many of my previous roles involved managing teams and direct reports in addition to architecture and programming. Basically, I'm a hand ons tech leader.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring a heart for tech and eye for good design. I'm one a small group of programmers who can deliver great code and architecture but also interact with and manage diverse teams. I'm also one of the few who can say they have master's degrees in both engineering and art, both from Ivy league institutions. Basically, I enjoy a challenge and appreciate working with good people.

As an Advisor

I like working with companies that have a defined vision and are open to different ideas and strategies to achieve product and technology goals to fulfill this vision.
