Business and product-focused technologist I began my career as a rocket scientist in the Arizona
desert. I’ve launched an ICBM interceptor from the south pacific into space and several startups. I’ve
led teams of hundreds of developers and managed complex military, financial, medical, and travel
platforms. After launching a consulting firm focused on making “web 2.0” useful, I moved to Europe in
2008 to work closely with investors in the next gen of web tech. With over 26 years of professional
experience as a developer, manager and executive, I focus on being an inspiring leader who can bring
out the best in my teams and staying sharp as an innovative individual contributor. The pace of
technical change keeps you on your toes, but the fundamentals remain the same: focus on the goal,
plan for risks, and continuously measure progress. I’m unconventional but experience enough to
remain practical. My passions are for team development, data, data vis and customer value. I strive to
be always learning, and to continue to be devoted to my peers and employees.

“I love Big Data, Super Ninja teams, and impossible challenges.”
