I’m the V.P. of R&D at Ubiquiti Networks - a manufacturer of disruptive technology platforms for emerging markets. I’ve been involved in ‘Internet Stuff’ since Day Zero (remember Gopher?), and have spent the recent past building out Cloud Services and VoIP platforms. This has led to my current involvement in erlang-based massively concurrent web-scale systems and services, as well as NoSQL/BigData platforms.

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 featured speaker at conferences over the years, including amongst others - ClueCon, CodeMesh, DataWeek, Erlang Factory, Erlang User Conference, INTEROP, ITEXPO, NoSQL Matters, OSCON, Real Time Communications Conference, TechMesh, TopConf, UniForum, and USENIX.

I was previously the CTO of Vocalocity after its merger with Aptela (where I was a founder and CTO). Before 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.
