Stealth-mode start-up

Co-founder, Technology

I'm a formally-trained programmer and have been coding for the past ten years. 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 helping to accelerate early-stage start-up founders.

In a past life, I spent a lot of time designing and playing 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 also write about start-ups and will occasionally (and fastidiously) do contracted web development work; you can contact me via email if you'd like to reach out about anything.
