Original architect & general manager of technology at Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD), co-founder & architect of Velocify (acquired by Ellie Mae, NYSE: ELLI, August 2017), and co-founder & current CTO of Tapin2. Glorified programmer, in reality.
Having built the original Cornerstone OnDemand talent and learning management suite, the Velocify lead management system, and the Tapin2 sports venue ordering and delivery platform, all from scratch over the past 17 years, I can bring some good advice to any tech startup with some building decisions ahead. I can provide in-depth guidance on platform choices, n-tier architecture, scalability, globalization, web vs. native, restful APIs, cloud deployment techniques, MVC design, high-traffic and complex database architecture (whether normalized or streamlined), abstraction of interfaces, coding conventions, object-oriented patterns, caching, and general source code maintainability. I also have specific expertise integrating with third-party email, SMS/telephony, payment processing and point-of-sale providers.
