Looking for Ye Olde Fryolator?
I enjoy working with smart, pleasant people to build interesting, useful software. I've been building web applications since the 1830s and have a particular interest in
social software enterprise SaaS.
I built and led Entelo's engineering and now product teams as we've grown the company from a team of 2 to almost 100. Over 450 customers rely on Entelo's software to identify, qualify, and engage with talent.
In August 2009 my language-oriented social network, Wordie.org, was acquired by Wordnik (now Reverb), where I was responsible for the web site, among other things.
I worked for Interactive News Technology, a small group of developers working directly in the New York Times newsroom to build tools and applications for and in conjunction with reporters and editors.
Designed and built Wordie.org, a collaborative social dictionary and the preeminent (and only!) social network for logophiles. The site was covered by TechCrunch, Wired, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and many others.
Designed and built CalenTweeter.com, for Tweet scheduling, management of multiple Twitter accounts, and Google Calendar integration.
Co-founded and built Squirl.info, a social cataloging site for collectors.
Designed and built TagsAhoy.com, a cross-service tag search engine.
Developer at LibraryThing.com, a social cataloging site for bibliophiles.
I led the team building the backend for www.whoi.edu, and also did scientific programming to help serve WHOI's unique research needs.
Consultant for the professional services division of an enterprise CMS software vendor, leading teams of developers from initial requirements gathering through post-launch and maintenance.
Developer for a Spanish and Portuguese-language portal site.
Reporter for the News Review, an English-language newspaper in Santiago, Chile.
Planned and completed a 14,000 mile bicycling expedition through thirteen countries, raising money for north-south development organizations through an organization I co-founded with my later partner in Squirl (see above).
