Product Videos – Demos & Product Innovations

I am currently part of the dynamic team at leading AI company ASAPP. I’ve served as General Manager and CEO for three software companies. My teams have delivered groundbreaking biometric authentication and identity services at scale for Fortune 500 companies.

In earlier work, I helped to lead Intel’s developer product tools division as a solutions owner and as a technical teams manager, with responsibility for several software development kits (SDKs) and public-facing marketing for these deployments. Products I helped launch at Intel included the OpenVINO computer vision toolkit and the Context Sensing SDK, now deployed on hundreds of millions of devices worldwide.

I hold several graduate degrees, with executive education through the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. I’ve also studied ethics and post-humanism at the Graduate Theological Union at U.C. Berkeley.

Vulcan Labs:
Director of Product Management

At an internal startup within Vulcan Labs, I led product management alongside a brilliant engineering and design team. Together, we created “Aro,” a new semantic application that surfaced entities inside of communications and provided a quick and easy user interface to take rapid action. We delivered applications for Paul Allen that demonstrated this unique user interface on iPhone and Android. I contributed to several patents on this application design and development.
