Quick message to my buds... My team at Amazon is growing! Think awesome scale, critical performance, and serious thinking out of the box. Our group is responsible for the "magic" (i.e., software systems & tech) that gets your package to your doorstep as promised (Aren't you dying to know how it's done?). Become a part of our ever expanding, complex, and massive fulfillment operations, service, and research organization as we continuously innovate to provide the world's best customer experience. If you crave the chance to solve the really, really tough stuff, immerse yourself in designing complex algorithms, think really BIG and without boundaries (machine learning, AI, you name it), and putting all of your skills, knowledge, and experience to the test, not just occasionally, but every_single_day, then we should talk. Trust me, we have some seriously smart people around here who will be your best buds, mental sparring partners, mentors, and advocates. #Software engineers, #dev managers, technical PM's, senior IT infrastructure leaders, and #research scientists... ping me directly if you're looking for a great place to work where everything you do has real meaning... i.e., You will make a real and positive impact on the lives of our amazingly loyal customers who expect, and deserve, only the best. I will personally get back to you and, yes... do feel free to "pass this on." Have an awesome day and come help Amazon to change the world! Phew!

Has proven to be an excellent scanner app for my android phone. Amazing scanning and cleaning up of images. Great for those times when you just need a scan and you're nowhere near a flatbed scanner.

If you have any sweet spot in your heart for the good ol' days of HyperCard... support LiveCode going open-source. Only £11,000 short of the £350,000 Kickstarter target with 36 hours to go! A small contribution can go a long way to jumpstart a new generation of coders.

Story
Tagline
Motivation from within is yours to keep. External rewards are fleeting.
Introduction
Been recruiting cutting-edge technology talent throughout Los Angeles for 12+ years. Recruiting offers me the opportunity to link my love of all things geeky, my deep interest in education and employee development, my desire to build strong, productive teams, and well... sappy as it sounds, I sometimes get to change someone's life by offering a path to reach his/her life goals. Given these tough economic times, I do hope to be able to provide advice and support for those looking for their next gig.

Big changes! I recently joined the awesome team at Metacloud, an early-stage start up here in Pasadena, CA. Metacloud builds enterprise-grade private clouds based on OpenStack! We're at the forefront of the private cloud tech space, providing an elegant subscription-based solution that’s a combination of platform and services. Ping me if you want more info.

Before Metacloud I had a 5-year run as the manager of IT recruitment at Warner Bros. a very cool studio doing amazing things ;) Prior to Warner, I had my one, and only, contract gig over at Google (I just had to see what it was like to work for the big G!). Finally, many of you know me from my 7 years with InterActive Corp. where my group built-out engineering teams for Ticketmaster, Citysearch, Evite, etc. A big shout out to my old friends in the perl world!

I leave my door open to techies looking for some job hunting advice and recruiters willing to share war stories ;)
