I am a software engineer, business executive and successful entrepreneur. I'm a perfectionist, detail oriented and won't take no for an answer. I believe in the power of positive thinking and dedication. My passion for technology has powered my high-energy path from Southern Adventist University where I studied for a Masters of Software Engineering. Immediately I struck out, being instrumental in the founding of companies such as deviantART and Interfund Financial (Virtual Money).... From there I made my mark working for a startup company in Canada, starting as a developer and finishing as CTO. MedCenter went from 0 to $20M/yr sales, with over half being credited to my SEO efforts. I engineered and deployed a high-tech paperless CRM, managing millions of paperless faxes and other medical documents internationally. We successfully exited and I moved to Florida, where I worked with Christos Cotsakos building a Web 2.0 social networking site with over 1M members. I moved on to work with a SF brand monitoring firm, where I built an AJAX-driven portal and database to handle millions of records. Following I was lead software engineer for Johnson & Johnson. I designed, prototyped, developed and re-factored a Web 2.0 product architecture designed to transform health-care for millions of people. I'm an engineer with experience building systems to scale, and have used various topologies such as data pods, clusters and shards. In 2009 I was the CTO at Jettis Payment Processing, leading over 15ppl w/ 1.5M/y budget. From 2011-2013 I engineered an Enterprise Application Integration for Barnes & Noble, receiving strong recognition from executives for my successful implementation. I am now co-founder of InList, a disruptive mobile app for booking exclusive reservations.
