About

Hello

Thanks for stopping by!

I got my start in tech at 19, as a systems engineer for one of the first Internet conferencing services in the 90s. Since then, I’ve architected application infrastructures and managed 24×7 operations for both dotcoms and enterprises. The most memorable work experience came from being part of the team that scaled the web infrastructure for the World Health Organization (WHO) to support the 20X growth of web traffic during the SARS epidemic.

In addition to having spent time in non-governmental organizations, I have worked for startups (PictureTalk, E-Centives, & Tradeshift) as well as multi-nationals (Cisco, Riverbed). I love product strategy and business development work, especially when I’m able to apply technology in a meaningful way. I hold an Executive MBA from Imperial College London and believe that successes are built on 1/3 intuition + data, 1/3 hard work, & 1/3 luck.

I’m also the founder of the Corkbin wine app, which is now part of Hello Vino. Everything I learned in taking a mobile app to market has now been documented in a book titled “The Evolution and Dynamics of the Mobile App Economy: Strategies for Innovating and Marketing Mobile Apps”.
