Small Business Owner in Portland, Oregon
I am a passionate entrepreneur with 20+ years of experience building teams and companies that build products at Internet scale. I just started a software company focused on the cannabis market called Odava. During my career I've had my share of successes and plenty of failures. I've gotten to work at some amazing places like Urban Airship, Amazon, Rulespace and Janrain. More than that I've been fortunate to be recognized as a leader in the industry such as being named to Red Herring’s list of ‘25 Titans in waiting’ in early 2007 and winning the Entrepreneur's Award for Individual Achievement by Oregon Entrepreneurs Network in 2012. I have BS degree in Computer Science that I got from Oregon State University and haven't written a line of code since 2009. I love to speak publicly on mobile, technology, marijuana and banking and am also an avid pizza maker, meat smoker, bacon lover, father and husband living in Portland, OR.
