Founder, CTO of Lucidworks. 20+ years in software engineering, natural language processing, search and machine learning. Published technical author with Manning Books.
As an experienced CTO, Founder and long time hiring manager, I know how hard it is to find good advice and good people, especially if you are non-technical or in the early stages of your company. I have two simple goals: to help you determine what is the right technical hire for your company and get you straight forward advice on data science, search and machine learning in practice.
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.
