Story
Introduction
I'm a serial entrepreneur and software engineer; sold three companies and built apps and games on iOS and Facebook reaching over 73 million users. Having always been passionate about education I am now building products that help people learn on mobile devices. 

Got my start co-founding an online restaurant business in college and developed skills in sales, running large distributed workforces, and building systems to collect and manage large complex data sets.

Since then I discovered I'm pretty good at creating contexts where people want to do things online. Specialties include social games, iOS games, viral mechanics, virtual currency based systems and micro transactions.

Occasionally I enjoy investing in and advising early stage startups.

I find purpose in empowering people to realize their potential, making the world more efficient and helping human beings improve their environment.
