500 alum and long time internaut. Co-founded several companies and worked on three continents. Last travel data app > 23M/yr+ revenue. Managed teams with 35+ people. Raised funding three time including a startup studio. Bootstrapped to profitability twice. Sold thrice, but never huge. Software designer, whistleblower fan and occasional writer. Social engineer and the internaut of things. The rest is inconspicuous. I enjoy small teams who do big things and being a full time traveler with my family. All problems can be solved and every moment a new opportunity. I constantly need help with one or more of these keywords and often can help others with the same: javascript, architecture, architect, design, api, ionic, angular 2, node.js, stamplay, stripe, google cloud, aws, heroku, ruby/python/php when necessary, javascript, html5, writeon, beard and fedora, css, gulp, grunt, travis, codeship, mongo, graph, cloudant, mysql, gae datastore (hate), cloudflare, zapier, data, social graph, ecommerce, taxonomy, content management, cms, fulfillment, UX, CX, photoshop, illustrator, chromeos, mac osx, linux, ubuntu, markdown, writeon, tdd, mocha, protractor, userfairy, browser testing, DOM, karma, specs, documentation, github git, wiki, ugh...this is tiring.

Workflow, workflow, workflow. Just today I screwed up big time, but thanks to mastering git, it was about 5 minutes recovering something that would take half a day in SVN, and would have been unrecoverable without SCM.
