I am currently the Director of Technical Services at MindTouch, a popular open source collaboration platform utilized by millions worldwide.  At MindTouch I am responsible for developing longterm internet collaboration strategy for clients such as:

  • Autodesk
  • Intel
  • Intuit
  • AXA Insurance
  • Washington Post
  • Booz Allen Hamilton


I started my first web design company, Majestic Internet, at the age of 16 when I began cold calling companies out of the yellow pages.   My first customer was ALL Crane Leasing and Sales which became the first of over 50 web design clients.  Majestic Internet eventually grew to four employees and provided a variety of services including web design, e-commerce development and of course CD burning.

Shortly after I turned 16 I also applied to work at a local ISP and web design company called Mango Bay Internet.  At Mango Bay I primarily focused on web design and eventually learned ASP.  My new found development skill ultimately sparked the start of my career.
