Founder, product manager and designer who has been working in Silicon Valley for twenty years. I am co-founder and CEO of Storium. Prior to Storium I co-founded and successfully sold Blockboard, a mobile social network for neighborhoods. I was director of product for social bookmarking pioneer del.icio.us, oversaw R&D efforts at Yahoo that produced search breakthroughs later copied by Google, and was a product manager for BEA Systems' WebLogic family of Java technologies. I've bootstrapped, crowdfunded, and venture funded my way across this industry, and have loved every minute of it.
