Tech I'm most excited about right now:

"Everything! There is so much going on in so many domains. The frontend landscape is changing so rapidly it’s hard to keep up, but that makes it so exciting. For instance, the Houdini project, which is a joint task force of engineers from different companies, is doing some really exciting things that will make a huge impact on the future of frontend development."

Tech I'm most excited about right now:

"Languages that leverage new developments in functional programming paradigms are really exciting. Commoditization of build and runtime dependencies in the form of containerization, infrastructure-as-code, and PaaS’s (just to name a few) are changing everything about how we build systems."

Despite once telling Katie Holmes, "You look exactly like Katie Holmes," and driving away with the gas pump attached twice, my previous startups were successful. My first startup, eVariant, raised $70M in funding led by Goldman Sachs. My second, Yellowhammer, earned $21M in revenue in only our second year, was ranked #37 on Inc's 500 Fastest Growing Companies, and was completely bootstrapped.

My core values are focusing on people and the three Cs—customer obsession, continuous improvement, and communication. I'm also heavily focused on data-driven priorities and design experiments. It's important to fail fast, smart, often, and cheaply. My team has hundreds of amazing ideas but only time for a few. Finally, I'm looking to eliminate a terrible source of misery in the world: the bad boss.
