Metaversant Group, Inc.
Founder, 2010 - present
Metaversant is a professional services firm focused on helping clients get the most out of their digital assets, whether those assets are office documents, web content, rich media (images, audio, video), or legal records. The primary way we make that happen is by implementing custom content-centric and process-centric solutions using open source technologies like Alfresco.
Chief Community Officer, 2011 - 2014
I spent my time at Alfresco traveling the world, speaking at conferences and meetups, writing blog posts, hacking code, and authoring a second book. I took a small developer event and grew it into a 1000-person conference including a successful pivot to appeal not just to geeks but also to practitioners and business people. I established a marketplace where more than 300 community-contributed solutions were listed, mostly as freely-available open source software. Alfresco Community Edition was downloaded something like 4 million times during my tenure, which isn't too shabby for enterprise software.
Most important to me were the members of the community I met and worked with from all parts of the world. It was truly a special experience.
Sr. Director, ECM, 2006 - 2010
While I was at Optaros the Boston-based firm was focused exclusively on delivering business value to clients with open source technology. I ran the ECM practice which consisted almost entirely of Alfresco and Drupal projects. During that time I worked on projects for clients such as Activision, Sony Pictures, Turner Broadcasting, Travelocity, and Orbitz.
Vice President, ECM, 2006
Hitachi Consulting acquired Navigator Systems. After the acquisition I continued to run the ECM practice as described below.
Practice Director, ECM, 1997 - 2006
In the early days of Navigator the ECM practice was about collaboration and knowledge management. We primarily did custom Lotus Notes and Domino implementations. We then started doing content management projects. Some were custom. Others were on Interwoven and Autonomy. Ultimately we focused on Documentum and saw a lot of success with that. I ran the practice and billed on projects, typically as an architect, for clients such as BNSF, PepsiCo, Frito-Lay, Texas Instruments, and Southwest Airlines.
I led the Lotus Notes team for ClubCorp, a company that owns and operates country clubs, social clubs, and fitness clubs all over the country. I developed a variety of custom Lotus Notes applications including a web content management solution for country club managers.
I was a member of the Lotus Notes team at Sprint where I developed a number of custom Lotus Notes applications.
I was a member of the Mainframe Computing Services department at Texas Instruments where I was part of a team that managed systems software changes to TI's worldwide data centers.
