I am a startup entrepreneur.

I am part of the management team at Mesosphere.

I was CMO of Heroku.

I am the co-founder of two companies, including the publicly-traded the interactive television company Wink Communications (IPO, NASDAQ).

I served on the national board of the Trust for Public Land for 7 years. Also, I was Chairman for Commonweal Communities, a non-profit housing developer.

I am a professionally-trained chef. Chili peppers, cardamom and kimchi make me swoon.

I helped build a PC operating systems at Geoworks.

I studied philosophy, rhetoric and linguistics at UC Berkeley.

People describe me as optimistic and enthusiastic. Those are my super-powers.
