I am an entrepreneur who loves making products and growing startups. These days I am building Maxwell, a company with a mission to empower mortgage lenders to be more connected, productive, and successful.
Before Maxwell, I founded Bright Funds in 2012 with a mission to design experiences that unlock passion and capital from a new generation of donors focused on impact. Before creating Bright Funds, I worked in marketing, product design, and software engineering at various successful bay-area startups and venture-backed private companies including Coverity (acquired by Synopsys), Omneon (acquired by Harmonic), Topspin (acquired by Cisco) and Procket Networks (acquired by Cisco). For a chronological look at my background and experiences, you can find my resume on Usybee.
I was on CauseArtist’s list of social entrepreneurs to watch for in 2014. I have been an active voice on immigration reform in United States, and was featured in The Wall Street Journal and on a KRON news segment on on startup visas.
When inspired to write, I share my thoughts on startups, products, and design. My essay on Agile software development was published in ‘Creative Entrepreneurship’, a collection of essays helping founders great build companies.
Some of my public software projects and code can be found on GitHub.
