I'm CEO of hack.hands() which is doubling the speed of programming through instant mentoring.

I'm founder of hack.summit(), the largest programmer conference in history, and the largest virtual conference in history. I also founded the hack.pledge() movement.

I lead a syndicate of 60+ investors on AngelList here. I mentor startups from 500 Startups, YC, Capital Factory, TechStars, and more.

I was founder & CEO of Ghostfire Games. Our game Rage of the Gladiator won critical acclaim as a top-rated Wii title. It's available on Nintendo 3DS, Android, and won a game-of-the-year award for iPhone/iPad.

I created the world's largest Java community (450,000+ members), TheServerSide, and created international Java conferences. I wrote the book Mastering EJB.

I was founder & CEO of The Middleware Company, a Java training/consulting company, which I grew over 4 years then sold.

I enjoy rollerblading, board games, salsa dancing, and performing improv comedy.
