An entrepreneurial product and technology leader that keeps on top of the latest in design, architecture and creative innovations. I love working with small teams of domain experts who excel at collaborative problem solving and can execute a strategy. My passion problem is finding inefficiencies in digital markets and disrupting them. Particularly two-sided markets with lots of real-time data. I’ve designed trading platforms, built data services, and implemented arbitrage algorithms for financial markets. Helped programmatically scale users and revenue for publishers in E-Commerce and Advertising markets. And developed sports betting middleware, horse-racing engines and poker platforms in gaming markets.
