I'm the CTO of the startup company FunnelFire, where we build a sophisticated real-time sales intelligence platform. I'm also an adjunct professor of Computer Science at Stevens Institute of Technology, where I teach a variety of courses from Introduction to C++11, to Data Structure and Algorithms, to TCP/IP Networking (an advanced programming course where students re-implement the network stack).
I graduated in 2009 from Stevens Institute of Technology with a bachelors and masters of science in Computer Science, a minor in Law & Public Policy, and graduate certificates in Computer Systems, Databases & Service Oriented Architecture, Distributed Systems, Enterprise Computing, Quantitative Software Engineering, and Service Oriented Computing.
I got my start programming at a very young age, writing QBasic programs to display colorful circles on the screen while sitting on my dad's lap when I was 3 years old. My first big projects were a Super Mario World clone for GameBoy, a MUD called HybridMOO, and a home automation package called IntellHome (which I still use!).
I'm actively involved in a number of open source initiatives, including an open-source middleware tool called PushoverQ.
I am interested in hiking, exploration of abandoned or neglected sites and buildings, photography (particularly of those abandoned sites, but also glamour/editorial), cooking, snowshoeing, and New Jersey trivia/history.
