Resume

WORK HISTORY

Dec 2013 – Present

Founder

Phase 2 Labs

After founding, building, and selling Fielding Systems to Quorum Software, I joined the Quorum executive team and experienced firsthand how challenging new technology can be even for a technology company such as Quorum. I have also invested and advised startups and too found there is a scarcity of resources available today to meet the demand for technology, increasing the probability of failure caused by unknown, unknowns.

We are witness to exciting times for startups and mature businesses alike where technology has become the differentiator. If you miss a strategic opportunity, you may not get another chance. First movers have an advantage because of the essential learnings and experience that gets operationalized on each iteration.

Mar 2015 – Dec 2018

Vice President

Quorum Software

I joined the software executive team through the acquisition of Fielding Systems. Quorum Software was already underway with a transformation effort, moving from a professional services organization with software to a product-focused software organization. Some of the most rewarding experiences at Quorum include:

  • Constructing product and digital transformation strategies to evolve legacy products, move them and our customers to the public cloud and SaaS solutions.
  • The buildout multiple development teams and architects to progress multiple initiatives including hiring two vice presidents, 10 architects, and 25+ software engineers.
  • Involvement and participation in the acquisition of additional software companies that delivered solid inorganic growth to Quorum.
  • Leading advanced research and development efforts involving Quorum’s most successful products, working directly with customers through the design process, determining market fit, and ultimately being able to demonstrate concretely what I knew technology could deliver in a way that surprised everyone.

Sept 2009 – Mar 2015

President/CEO – Founder

Fielding Systems

The company I founded that delivered the world’s first solution for the oil and gas industry in the cloud (Azure) and native mobile applications (Android, iOS). Fielding’s data capture and analytics platform gathered data electronically from people in the form of mobile tablet applications designed for field workers and IoT/SCADA services that gathered data from devices and sensors. All data was centralized on the cloud where it was used for reporting, performance optimization, alarming, and notifications. The company grew to 14 employees and 80 customers when acquired in 2015 by Quorum Software.

June 2006 – Sept 2009

Architect

Tallan, Inc.

This is where I started my professional consulting career developing enterprise applications on the Microsoft stack (.NET, SQL Server) technologies for several Fortune 500 clients as a means of getting exposed to a lot of different technologies, industries, and organizations to prepare me for when I started my own company. Tallan provided plenty of these learning experiences as I grew from

  • a senior consultant building enterprise applications
  • a data engineer building data warehousing solutions
  • an architect of large scale enterprise application integration projects
  • the lead of the Integration Practice (BizTalk).

A secondary benefit of my time at Tallen was being able to work across multiple industries, adding depth to my domain expertise in healthcare, manufacturing, and retail. I ultimately left the company to pursue the founding of my first company, Fielding Systems.
