I bring an experimental attitude (measurement-based, results- and process-oriented) and aptitude to everything I do. Formally trained as a physicist, I am helping lead business development efforts at the convergence of artificial intelligence and high performance computing at Cray. I've worked at DARPA, the U.S. State Department, and a small high-tech business. As much as I love science & technology, nothing important ever gets solved without people. What really gets me excited is creating and sustaining cultures where smart people solve hard problems — and love the work and trust the people they work with.
