Serial tech startup founder/CEO/CTO. Co-Founder and CEO at Rippl.me. Hands-on software engineer.
I've played a founding role in several tech startups, including HaystackIQ founded by Jay Walker (founder of Priceline). My roles are typically CTO/product owner, but I've been in the CEO seat on two of my own startups.
I've been designing and coding software for over a decade in a variety of roles, languages, and frameworks. I won Oracle Magazine's Architect of the Year award in 2008 for innovative work I did in the area of service-oriented architecture.
I ran a full-service infrastructure and operations organization for 2+ years, overseeing a team of 25 onshore and 20 offshore resources, a 2000 sq ft onsite datacenter, and two outsourced datacenters.
