I'm a nerd-turned-CEO. I've been a web developer for over a decade (and a CEO for about 15 minutes) and have built some big stuff, little stuff, and everything in-between. I love web standards and spent several years on the CSS working group and a little bit of time as an AC rep in the W3C. I also love Ruby on Rails, mashups, MongoDB and anything that helps me do my job better or faster.
I've managed through the good, the bad and the ugly with editors, designers, developers,and marketers at companies big & small. Through it all, people and communications are the key. I'm also a voice actor, photographer and music junkie who's been attending SXSW since 1993.
