Shaun has more than 20 years of experience in the software industry, and he has a track-record of innovating new products and building successful teams for both start-ups and established corporations. Early in his career, he helped launch several successful technology start-ups including IDE and O2 Technology followed by principal roles at Xerox, Fujitsu and then Chief Architect of Tandem Computers, now part of HP.

Soon after, he was recruited by Charles Schwab & Co. where he turned-around several divisions and was responsible for the launch of their community portal on schwab.com as well as several large-scale financial services systems.
He has contributed to standards committees, spoken at industry conferences and currently has a patent pending for the first mobile integrated browser/instant messenger. Shaun holds an A.B. from UC Berkeley and an M.S. and Ph.D. from UC San Francisco.
