Full bio

Founded Percipo to Make Machines More Human. Built a computer model to learn and estimate a large class of visual data very fast and very well. Proof of concept apps launched with over 4M users today.


I ran EFI's core business building award winning imaging products and helped make the company a ubiquitos name in the printing industry.


Built statistical models to help traders find buy/sell opportunities. System still in use helping gifted traders beat the market, making a ton of money.


Built a first of its kind multimedia conferencing system for Bell Canada. They didn't make any money from it! But it was a great system, they used it internally a lot, and I learned a lot from it.


Wrote my thesis on optimal multimedia communications architectures and developed the first application sharing layer for Windows that let you share Windows "applications" over modem lines--wow that was way back!
