A Technologist and Entrepreneur, he is a VP of R&D at Ubiquiti Networks - a communications technology company that manufactures disruptive technology platforms for emerging markets. He has been involved in ‘Internet Stuff’ since Day Zero (remember Gopher?), and has spent the recent past building out Cloud Services and VoIP platforms. This has led to his current involvement in erlang-based massively concurrent systems and services largely based around NoSQL/BigData. He is also actively involved in the future of Cloud Communications - and particularly in the fusion of synchronous (Voice / Video) and asynchronous (Twitter / SMS / IM / Facebook / Email / etc.) modes of interaction.
He has 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 he may never live down.
He has been a featured speaker at conferences over the years, including amongst others - ClueCon, DeveloperWeek, Erlang Factory, INTEROP, ITEXPO, NoSQL Matters, OSCON, RTCC, TechMesh, TopConf, UniForum, and USENIX.
He was previously the CTO at Vocalocity prior to its merger with Aptela (where he was a founder and CTO). Before that, he was the V.P. of Development at Neoglyphics where he inaugurated the use of Java based technologies in financial services, and the CTO of Proxicom where he also led the Technology practice.
