I’ve been tinkering with technology since I was 12. I’ve been interested in seeing what I can do with technology to build awesome things and to help myself, others and the world.
My dad bought me my first computer, an Apple Mac IIe, at age 12 soon after at age 14, I built my first commercial software solution handling data processing for engineering equipment along with database applications for infrastructure management in Basic, Pascal, Foxpro and Fortran.
In 1996, I started college level CS classes while in high school at 17 and was involved in Microsoft research to build a mobile PDA C++ compiler (named eC) for the Windows CE powered Cassiopeia well before any today’s modern ubiquitous smartphone and devices like the iPhone. At the same time I was taking 500-level 3D graphics theory CS classes and also got into 3D CAD and LISP which led to helping with redesigning highway intersections, creating earthquake impact animations based on finite element simulations of earthquakes of New Madrid Fault Line near the Mississippi River.
After starting a bachelor of electrical engineering degree I was also given the privilege and challenge to be in charge of supercomputers and network computer labs and got to play with Cray Unicos, BSD, Linux and a bunch of other technology. I was often hired by researchers to learn on the job and helped them find faster and better ways to do their job and improve their results including better visualizations. I even developed custom OpenGL 3D interactive visualization technology in just 3 weeks for researchers seeking to better understand super computer simulation result data.
I got an early start managing expert development teams at age 20 at one of the world’s first Linux certification companies. This was my first taste of working with startups then after moving back to the Washington DC area I got motivated by succeeding in a travel startup through the dot-com bust which led to me starting UVision Consulting, in 2004 as a technology consultancy, with the aim of helping clients small and large leverage software and web technologies to accelerate results for their goals.
Since starting UVision as a technology consultancy, I’ve started or worked with over 4 startups that accelerated and got acquired with measurable value across many sectors. I often work with government agencies and have been honored and humbled by a
a White House award working to help raising awareness on protecting the world’s oceans.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and other times I enjoy DJing, photography, travel, tweaking technology and experimenting with ideas.
I dig physics, video games, computing, data, visualization, technology and innovation. I help businesses simplify, optimize and innovate to create value. I build solutions to help align people, process & business goals. I’m constantly seeking and experimenting with technologies to help me build bigger and better products and ideas. I’ve built and overseen the development of a variety of technology solutions helping organizations connect with their customers and with their workforce. I’ve saved millions of dollars for clients by reducing over-engineering, improving collaboration, helping them be measurably effective.
