Catalyze is a HIPAA-compliant platform as a service (PaaS) with a distributed team. I design key internal and external parts of the product.

In the past I designed and managed products at HarQen in Milwaukee.

I'm married to my best friend, Rena. We have a lot in common. The Venn diagram of music interests is pretty similar, though my favorite music is Four Tet and hers The Smashing Pumpkins. We share a love for sports, travel, and gardening.

I'm interested in design, technology, economics, maps, communication, music, spy thrillers, chess, cooking, and fly fishing.
