Mobido is my consulting company that helps both new startups and established companies with struggling engineering teams. In the past I've helped quickly scale, realign engineers with best management and engineering practices, and hit deadlines.
Engagements last from several months, to several years.
We are entering the third wave of the consumer Internet experience. The first wave was search driven exploration dominated by companies like Google, and vertically by the ubiquitous search box in every app and website. The second wave is the current curated experience provided by the dominant social networks where a feed, managed by the app maker, consumes the persons attention and monetizes through advertising.
The third wave is an Internet where people take control of the logic that manages their attention. This attention logic will move onto their smartphones and user will truly be in control. The attention logic won't be affected by advertising and the addictive behavior corporations pursue, but instead will truly care about the persons emotional and physical health.
Presdo/Hub - Blockchain Engineer
Helped Presdo explore applications of blockchain to trust protocols. Wrote token contracts derived from Open Zeppelin, and built apps using web3 and a local geth node.
Tempo.ai - Product Manager
Before Mobido I was a Product Manager at Tempo.ai. While at Tempo I also helped scale the servers, coded with the iOS team, and managed the Android engineering team. We were acquired by Salesforce in 2016.
AllTheCooks/Yum-Yum Labs - Founder/CEO
In 2011, I started Yum-Yum Labs with Raj Singh with an eye towards mobile health. Our early focus was the impact your diet has on health. After discussing our goals with Rafael Sanches, he quickly built a cooking app around our APIs, did some masterful marketing and SEO, and garnered 50K downloads in a single week. We pivoted the company, and turned the app into the #1 cooking app on Android. Two years later AllTheCooks was acquired by Cookpad.
Nuance Communications - Manager, Strategic Partnerships
I joined Nuance in 1999 to build an engineering team to create the Voyager Voice Web Server and bolster our IPO. After shipping the product my focus shifted to sales and I joined the Voyager strategic sales team. To open up the market I then moved into marketing where I managed our large strategic partnerships.
