Internet professional with 20 years of experience leading web systems development for startups, Top 20 websites, and Fortune 500 companies. Information architect and internet entrepreneur with a masters degree from UC Berkeley, School of Information.

I'm an information architect: a creative technical executive with a breadth of technical network experience ranging from new media production to infrastructure coding to wireless research. I'm a visionary in the practical application of technology over time, less concerned with abstract thinking about normative states of technological society. A deep understanding of social science with requisite statistical and analytical skills provides me clarity in matters of user behavior both inside, outside, and between organizations. I have started companies and advised C-level managers, therefore my rare business acumen is honed by years of operating in a wide variety of corporate settings. I speak the language of databases and software, network architectures, media deployment, and business creation.

I killed my account on Facebook today, March 20, 2012. So you won't find me there. Read You Are Not A Gadget by Jeron Lanier if you're curious why.

My final project for my masters at UCBerkeley School of Information was entitled "The Language of Creativity" where I looked at how language plays an integral part of the innovation process for software engineers.
