Fractional CTO and Founder at Develomentor LLC. Founder, ex-CTO of Lucidworks. CTO of Wikimedia Foundation (e.g. Wikipedia) from 2019-2021. 20+ years in software engineering, natural language processing, search and machine learning. Published technical author with Manning Books.
As a fractional CTO focused on the machine learning, search and NLP space, I focus on helping companies assess their technology and teams.
I've spent all of my career in technology, first as a software engineer building complex applications in search, data science, machine learning and natural language processing and then as a founder, Board Member and CTO/VP of Engineering. Along the way, I have interacted with numerous customers from the engineer all the way up to the C-Suite.
I am also the lead author of Taming Text, from Manning Publications, winner of the Dr. Dobb’s Journal 2013 Jolt Productivity Best Book Award.
