Hiking in Scotland with my son Finn
I’m the Founder and President of CloudKite.io, a software engineering and services company focusing on building great backend infrastructure.
Previously, I built infrastructure and wrote software at Wikibuy, ROIKOI, Bazaarvoice, and the US DoD.
Before that, I hustled online casinos playing Blackjack and Video Poker, culminating in the development of screen-reading, perfect Blackjack playing software that I ran simultaneously across multiple VMWare instances. This software, called “The Lateshift”, more than paid for my education and entertainment while I obtained by Electrical Engineering degree at Clemson University.
These days, I spend most of my professional time writing software, hammering on Amazon Web Services / Google Cloud Platform, and helping make CloudKite’s clients as happy and productive as possible.
On a personal level, I’m the proud father to two perfect kids, a burner of midnight oil, a tennis player, and sometimes I even find time to play some poker. I’ve lived in 5 countries, have travelled to almost 30, and hope to one day join the Traveler’s Century Club.
My family and I are currently living in Austin, TX. We have previously called Brooklyn, NY / Stuttgart, Germany / Aix-les-bains, France / and Charleston, South Carolina home.
