Why are you working for/with tech startups?

I am very interested in emerging technologies. I am a passionate advocate for agile development practices and aside from my day job I teach iPhone and Facebook development at UCI.

What problem are you trying to solve?

Right now I own / co-own a portfolio of iPhone applications. Some are financially rewarding while others are behind. I am working on a process to successfully and most of all repetitively market mobile application in an international environment.

Describe startup life.

After 12 years in IBM I am reconnecting my agile roots with all the good stuff I have learned in a major corporation. Not always easy but definitely rewarding.


MS/BS in Computer Science and 20+ years of professional software development experience, including 15 years of 1st and 2nd line Development, QA, Product, Release, Globalization, and Offshore Management. Most recently left IBM to focus on my business.
