Technology Strategy

I work in the area of technology strategy, product management, and organizational problem-solving. Recent projects include technology strategy consulting for Flash Foto, a computer vision startup, and product requirements specification for a predictive analytics ecommerce company.

Previously, I served as interim head of Product Management for Wyse Technology where I organized product planning and development initiatives for the company's portfolio of 20 hardware and software products. This included facilitating the ramp-up of 100-member India and China software development subsidiaries.

In 2003, I founded Neosociety, a social networking software company and technology platform for facilitating involvement in membership associations and non-profit initiatives. Other recent projects include technology and product strategy for an enterprise software infrastructure company.

As my first entrepreneurial venture, I co-founded Infoscape with Richard Williamson (now at Apple). Infoscape was a venture-backed software company that developed enterprise tools and applications in Java. Infoscape grew to 25 employees and was recognized by Upside and Computer World magazines as one of the top 100 emerging technology companies for 1998.

Prior to Infoscape, I developed object-oriented user interface software for designing client/server database applications at both NeXT (a Steve Jobs company) and Oracle Corporation.

Education: B.A in Computer Science from Harvard University, with a focus on cognitive psychology and neural networks.

Home: San Francisco, California.


Research Interests
I am interested in the patterns of effective social organization, which includes collaboration strategy, corporate management strategy, and the strategies underlying effective governance in both the public and private sector. What connects all these interests together for me is the common theme of self-organizing systems which achieve collective goals.
