CTO & Co-founder

After studying Computer Science and English at Harvard, I worked as a software engineer at Endeca Technologies; when Endeca was acquired by Oracle, I started doing full-stack web development and product work for start-ups in Cambridge, including as a Hackstar @ Techstars Boston in Fall 2012 & as a co-founder of Avalanche, a co-founders-for-hire service aimed at accelerating early-stage start-up founders via product & strategy support. Most recently I've built Honestry and co-founded HireProbability.

In a past life, I spent a lot of time designing videogames, going on runs (Boston Marathon 2010, 3h45m), and re-reading Dante's Divine Comedy. I wear flip-flops all year 'round and am a teeeeny bit obsessed with Audrey Hepburn. I enjoy writing about start-ups and will occasionally (and fastidiously) consider helping you build yours. You can contact me via email if you'd like to reach out about anything.
