I live in a suburb of Dallas, Texas with my wife, son, daughter and dog. I started my first company when I was a sophomore in college and my second about about 20 years later. I’m on my third now but frankly it is a sham – I am really just playing with technology and enjoying myself. Who knows if anything will come of it. In between all that I did applied research on operating systems at Bell Labs, created nation-scale network OSS products, integrated a bunch of tech companies from corporate acquisitions, and was an exec for a software business with revenue measured with the B word. Through it all I always stayed hands on with technology which is my true love. Well, after my wife and kids of course! CS degrees from Southern Methodist University and Colorado State University.
