Engineering Manager, Square, 2018 - present
I currently lead a team of mobile security engineers, building high-scale products for the assessment of security risk.
Vice President of Engineering, Splash, 2016 - 2018
I led engineering at Splash. I created a culture of excellence by leading a process-oriented team, enforcing high standards of code quality and testing, messaging concerns and successes to the company at large, and working with the product organization to conceive new features beyond the cutting edge.
Director of Engineering, Tumblr, 2012 - 2016
I built and directed the Content Intelligence and Security teams at Tumblr. I worked closely with the product engineering group, outreach and messaging teams, backend engineers, leadership, and Yahoo! counterparts to ensure the smooth running and agile positioning of Tumblr in the world of social media and content creation.
Chief Technical Officer, LocalHero Inc., 2010 - 2012
LocalHero started as an altruistic idea about a product that would make life safer and warmer for people worldwide. This idea led to a fast-paced, high-quality product endeavor, launched in 2011 on iOS, Android, and the web. We presented on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2011 (video).
Senior Software Developer, 6Connex, Inc., 2007 - 2010
Software development, business process analysis, developer management
The success of my work on Design Reactor's virtual trade show product led to the creation of a firm dedicated to developing that product into a turnkey solution for virtual events. Working on a 24-hour cycle with several overseas teams, we turned a one-off Flash/PHP site into a SaaS Java/Flex product with built-in management, specialization, and accountability suites. Clients included Cisco Systems, Intel, and HP.
Software Consultant, 1998 - 2007
Business consulting, design, production, software development, IT
Before and after graduation, I found myself in demand as a website developer, animator, video processor, information architect, business-process analyst, perl hacker, and database administrator. Working with many clients, I supported myself and extended my skill set.
