Key Accomplishments

I have a deep and broad technical background gained from 14 years bouncing around the world in increasingly responsible technology roles, from building Investment Banking trading systems to strategic technology consulting for Fortune 500 companies and startups. Currently, I'm co-founder and CEO of Xendo, helping people work effectively across cloud-services. Most recently, I was Senior Product Manager at Orange in San Francisco. Previously, I founded a file-storage and collaboration startup targeting SMBs (www.filobite.com) and consulted to Carticipate (as their CTO) launching the first ride-sharing application on a location-aware mobile device (iPhone).

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'm a seasoned technologist with the skill and determination to take concepts through prototype to product launch and I'm looking to find like-minded founders who share a passion to make a better workplace and are prepared to battle through the highs and lows to get there.
