about

I’m a seasoned engineer, technology leader, and architect with a 10+ year track record of success at transformative startups in the healthcare, AI, cryptocurrency, and nonprofit industries. I focus on creating software which will have a tangible, positive impact on society. I’m presently Head of Data at Reify Health, where we are building solutions to connect and empower the global clinical trial ecosystem. I co-founded and was CTO at Wade & Wendy, a conversational AI company which provides a personal career guide to candidates and automation technology to talent acquisition partners. I was an early Core Developer and whitepaper author at Storj, a decentralized cloud storage network using Ethereum, and Lead Developer at Harmony Labs, where we used data science to measure and support the positive impact of media systems on society. Additionally, I was the founding technologist at the award-winning National Museum of Mathematics in NYC.

I’m deeply interested in complex systems science, emergent behavior, and distributed or decentralized systems and have published work on genetic stigmergy, a biologically-inspired algorithm that supports self-organization of robotic swarms. My interest in biologically-inspired systems also led me to study permaculture design with Andrew Faust.

My programming languages of choice are Clojure, ClojureScript, Golang, Python, and JavaScript. I’m also fluent with Linux, AWS, and GCP.

I fervently enjoy karaoke, swimming, running, and making my daughters laugh.
