About Me

I am a web entrepreneur and consultant living in New York. I've founded or co-founded (as tech lead) several startups, including GymGenius, GetComparisons, and Awessome.

I develop rapid product prototypes to quickly test market hypotheses and help optimize site conversion rates. Contact me or read more about my consulting services.

Some research papers I am not so humbly proud of from my former life as a molecular biologist:
