Key Accomplishments

I constantly think of ways in which software can makes our lives easier. And to that end, I'd like to create solutions to everyday problems.

I was previously the CTO/Co-Founder of a social sports startup. We grew our DAUs by about 15x in a very short period of time. This growth spurt was the catalyst for us to raise our series A, which we did successfully thanks to some great firms in the valley.

I'm a hacker, but my expertise really lies in product (I was the director of product for a large web property, and prior to that at Microsoft).

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I have product expertise, and it helps that I have a technical background. I've coded a decent amount of backend "stuff", and I know my way around mobile platforms. I'm very analytical (to a flaw sometimes). I operate under Eric Ries's "build-measure-learn" mantra.
