Biography

I joined ThoughtWorks in the fall of 2009, as Director of Social Impact. I spent nearly 20 years as a silicon valley entrepreneur working in both large organizations and small—as engineer, user-interface designer, product designer, architect, and founder. In 2006, I became CTO of Inveneo, a non-profit focused on IT infrastructure in Africa, and turned my focus to the use of technology for social good.

Away from my professional life I fly paragliders in international competitions as often as work allows. Can you spot the steep drop-off in competition results since I joined ThoughtWorks?
