Quick rundown of who I am
I'm the cofounder and Chief Technology Officer at Circadian Risk. We make physical security assessment software.
I also run CleverPoint LLC, a technology consulting firm. This is where I provide services for Fractional CTO/Fractional Head of Product. It is also the home to some special projects (Weddingle, ML Advent Calendars, Event Discovery, and many more).
Born and raised in the midwest.
I started my first business when I was 15 as a full-stack engineer building web applications for Fortune 500 companies.
Worked at Microsoft for several years. Looks like one of the patents I applied for was granted.
Spent the last several years working on becoming a better manager and leader for engineering, product, and design teams.
Love dabbling in technology
- AI/ML (Python/PyTorch, diffusion pipelines, reinforcement learning, vector databases)
- Web apps (TypeScript/React/Hasura/Postgres)
- Analytics (Python/Pandas/SQLAlchemy, Conversion rate optimization, funnel analysis, cohort analysis with tools like Google Analytics, MixPanel, and custom-built solutions made by me)
I used to co-host a weekly tech news podcast.
I have blogged. Would like to do that more, but will use the past tense for now until I redevelop that habit.
You can find me on Twitter.
In a former life, I was a decent standup comic. Now I mainly make meetings a bit less dry.
I'm available for about 4 speaking gigs at conferences and colleges/universities per year. I can talk about all sorts of topics: the importance of metrics, product management, entrepreneurship, the balance of tech and business, and more. Some of my favorite gigs have been: University of Michigan, MIT's Sloan School of Business, and UIUC.
