About Me

I started working on Internet startups in 1999 and never stopped. I have been an engineer, founder, consultant, CTO, product manager, and speaker. I offer coaching and consulting for software startups at Talaria Software.

I am the creator of USWDS Components, the open-source ViewComponent library for adding components from the US Web Design System (USWDS) to your Rails application.

In May 2020, I teamed up with Rob Head to create 52 Sketches. Together, and now with Claudia Alick, we built EarlyWords, a tool to help people unleash their creativity.

In 2020, I worked with Marcus Detry to create All In Blitz, the first ever college-football fantasy-conference game.

In 2017, I developed the first rigorous and comprehensive mathematical solution to bankroll management. That’s when I created Neverbust, the bankroll manager for professional poker players.

I am certified in ontological coaching, hypnosis, and neuro-linguistic programming. I spent seven years as professional poker player.

As an actor, I have performed in theatre, commercials, network television, and film. You may have seen me in commercials for Safe Auto, Evolve, Morgan and Morgan; teaching mindfulness with the Child Mind Institute or as the narrator in Project Life.
