Entrepreneurial C-level technical executive with extensive experience providing technical leadership in building web applications, mobile applications, and cloud system architecture for firms within ad-tech/martech, advertising revenue recovery, and education industries.

Highlights

Twenty plus years of hands-on experience developing application software, scalable rich web applications, mobile applications, ad-tech/martech, and e-commerce systems using open source.  Proven ability to lead and motivate high-performance teams locally, remotely and outsourced.

Unique experience on how ad-tech/martech works on individual sites and more broadly across the web.  Deep experience working on tracking technology (IndustryIndex) and adblock revenue recovery (BlockThrough) has given me deep insight into how martech and ad-tech work together with other technologies.
