PAST COMPANIES

SenseAware
Co-Founder/ Innovation Principal
I have believed for years in the power of the Internet of Things and we came up with some great ideas around that concept. We were pioneers in the area of Sensor Based Logistics and brought to market a platform that took the fist steps. I got to work with a great team to make our ideas into reality and launch this platform.

Current Status: Active product. Operational experts have taken over and I have moved to new projects.

CrowdPlace
Founder
Follow what matters. Filter the rest.
The solution to information overload.

 

TomorrowsTrends
Founder/ Blogger
I started and wrote for the Tomorrow’s Trends blog for years. It became part of the Forbes blog network and the AllTop blog network. It covered emerging trends, tech, and innovation.

OneRef
Founder
Mine the conversation of the Web.
OneRef was a search engine for news, blogs, bookmarks, tweets, videos, and pictures.
Instead of pointing you to a web page, it found the latest conversations and images on the web pertaining to your search.

 SurfRate
Founder
Around 2000, I built and launched SurfRate (formerly eBizCritique) a people-powered search engine and directory that ran on user reviews of Web sites. Mentioned in Smart Money Magazine.
Status: Sold to a private company.

I started programming when I was 12. So, this is just a sample of what I’ve worked on. I developed a Monty Hall Problem simulator (when I was young) to one of the first Web-based RSS feed reader platforms. I developed an Intranet from scratch (before everyone had one) and and other stuff. I can discuss anything else in person – I love to discuss innovation, business, tech products, and design. I don’t code much any more, but I do some design and I lead teams of people to create cool things.
