I am an entrepreneur who loves making products and growing startups. Currently, I am the Cofounder & CTO of Maxwell, a company that builds software and services to power the future of home financing.

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).

I also serve on the board of Lemontree Foods, a nonprofit with a mission to alleviate food insecurity.

Some of my public software projects and code can be found on GitHub.
