I’m the founder of The Hawaii Project, a new book discovery engine.
Previously I was responsible for Product Strategy and Product Management at Telenav, after they acquired goby. Prior to that I was the ceo of Goby, since acquired by Telenav. Before that I did time at Endeca, PTC, Netezza, Evans & Sutherland in a variety of R&D, professional services and business development roles. When I’m not obsessing over work, I’m a proud husband and father of two great kids, love to play tennis, am a compulsive reader and book collector, and am really into way too many different kinds of music.
If you’re into books, you might also enjoy a couple of side projects I built: BookPlaylist, a site where you can collaboratively build, listen and share music playlists for your favorite books, and CodexMap, that plots interesting books on a Google Map.
