I am a bookworm and love to read research publications from MIT’s Media Lab, University of Illinois I3 School, and copyright summations surrounding technology and innovation from the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School.  I recently finished reading Blue Ocean Strategy by Kim and Mauborgne from INSEAD and “The Innovators Dilemma”, “The Innovators DNA” and “The Innovators Solution,” all by Professor Clayton M. Christensen, Harvard Business School.

I am passionate about technology solutions that furthers the disruption of the American Education system and I am passionate about solving the growing homeless epidemic in the States. My most recent project, GPSFetch (www.gpsfetch.com) solves the problem of identifying unknown locations when emergency services are needed and is available for download from the iTunes App store. Previously, I co-created EXOPASS (www.exopass.com), a Blowfish and 256 bit encryption plugin that encrypts all direct messages on Facebook Messenger, Twitter and Gmail email messages.

I’m very active and on any given day you can find me running, swimming, hiking, or at the gym.

The truest way for me to test my skills and knowledge was to become an entrepreneur and be judged by the harshest peer group: the marketplace. Four years later, I am proud to say that I have an unusually firm grasp on technology, design, and business strategy skills needed to be successful at any company.
