Simply put, I am an idea guy. It is the application of creativity, fearlessness, and determination that leads me down the path toward innovation. So what will I innovate that will inflict the greatest impact on the world? I guess I will have to take it one idea at a time.
Technology in general is an endless playground for creativity, and an infinite source of revenues. I love technology because there is a never ending cycle of improvement in all facets of the human-computer experience. My personal interests are vested in software, specifically in the area of interactive data visualization and location intelligence.
I am a minimalist at heart and believe that the more simplistic and elegant something can be functionally and aesthetically, the better. It is the challenge of taking something complex or cumbersome and transforming it into an extremely simple solution that drives me every day.
My work has taken me all over the world and afforded me with the opportunity to see amazing places, meet interesting people, and share some exciting experiences. When I am not working, my downtime is spent in San Diego where I enjoy the benefits of living in southern California.
