My Life:

1964 model year human born in So. Cal. now living alongside the Cape Cod National Seashore in Truro, MA.

My ideal living goal is to meld New England coastal living with periodic trips to the desert to gain real balance.

And I like pie.

My Work:

I’m a technology entrepreneur working on my third start-up. I love the messaging, collaboration, and data management product space. I’m marrying this passion with cloud computing, SaaS, and big thinking about how to retain all the human generated content created by you and me.

I’m currently the founder and CTO for Sonian, which embodies all the themes above, and is building an “information discovery cloud” for email, files, documents and discussion. We’re currently running a single software reference architecture spanning multiple IaaS clouds.

My Gear:

Every tech person has their special gear. Here’s my current setup:

  • MacBook 12 with 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM.
  • Cinema Display 24 for the best viewing companion to the Macbook.
  • Time Capsule to preserve all my work history. Read more about my Automatic 3 Layered Backup Strategy.
  • iPhone 6.
  • iPad Air (now becoming a primary compute device for me.)
