Trained in engineering, medicine and finance, I use all three in building data and analytics products. At Innovatively, I build tools to support healthcare and life science companies in making their next strategic decision. I recently joined Capital One and now span the spectrum of data and analytics products from startups to large enterprises.
Previously, I was on the investing side of the table as a founding and managing partner at First Round Capital's Dorm Room Fund. I have also worked at the Partnership Fund and University City Science Center, focusing on healthcare and life science investing. As an independent consultant, I have joined teams as a utility player to solve the most pressing problems across business strategy, product development and engineering. My speciality is identifying inefficiencies or opportunities to operationalize and prototyping solutions. Scroll down to see some of the companies I have worked with and projects I have built.
Hi, I'm An
Palm Clinical Weblog
Palm Clinical WebLog was an app that allowed military medical students to augment the medical record and record their patient notes. Before wireless internet and smartphones, students would use this on rounds then sync it when they got to a computer. I built this as part of an internship with the Department of Defense and George Washington University.
SmartThings Virtual Thermostat
A big fan of the Internet of Things, I thought of a project that would both cut down on my electricity usage and optimize the temperature control in my apartment. I made an app that managed heating and cooling based on who was home and averaged multiple temperature sensors for a more accurate temperature reading.
I spent a summer as an engineer at Celera Genomics (now Quest Diagnostics), working on several different projects. The most notable project was the web-based genome browser. A version of that is now available on SourceForge.
