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

I'm also founder of hack.summit(), a virtual conference which raises money for a dozen non-profits in the coding space, and is tracking to be the largest programmer conference ever held.

I am an angel investor that leads syndicates of investors into startup deals on AngelList. You can access my deals here. I have mentored 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 developer community (450,000+ members), TheServerSide, and created international Java conferences. I wrote Mastering EJB, a book on programming.

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.
