Person Details

Update

I'm the EVP of Engineering at Cielo24 – the leading provider of Media Data, Media Intelligence, and Searchable Captions™ in the Enterprise - News, Entertainment, and Education - markets. Our customers include The Wall Street Journal, VICE Media, Kaltura, and Coursera amongst others.

I've spent the last 15 years creating reliable and highly scalable cloud-based video, web, and voice services for both business and consumer users. I'm particularly adept at building out and growing product-focused organizations, as well as organizing resources distributed across multiple projects and teams - both real and virtual.

I have the - dubious - honor of being involved in creating the first web/e-commerce system, the first java based financial services platform, as well as the first erlang-based cloud PBX, three products I may never live down.

I've been a prolific public speaker over the years, speaking and hosting at conferences such as ClueCon, DataWeek, Erlang Factory, ITEXPO, NoSQL Matters, OSCON, TechMesh, TopConf, and USENIX.

I was previously the V.P. of R&D (and Managing Director - Poland) at Ubiquiti Networks, a global provider of network and video hardware for service providers and enterprises, and the CTO of Vocalocity - one of the leading providers of mission-critical, cloud-based communication services for small businesses. Prior to that, I was the V.P. of Development at Neoglyphics where I inaugurated the use of Java based technologies in financial services, and the CTO of Proxicom where I also led the Technology practice.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and a Masters in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the University of Notre Dame.
