I like solving interesting problems with technology. I've done a little bit of everything, but my best work usually involves some combination of product management, building teams, writing, and making relationships.
On the side, I tend to obsessively binge on random new topics or hobbies every 6 months or so. Past obsessions have included photography, ukulele, epigenetics, human evolution, and Western European socialist history.
Occasionally, I think externally on Medium.
Occipital brings state-of-the-art computer vision to smartphones and tablets. Our main products are 360 Panorama (http://360.io), Structure Sensor (http://structure.io), Canvas (http://canvas.io), and Bridge (http://bridge.occipital.com), and we're backed by Intel Capital, Foundry Group, Shea Ventures, and Techstars (Boulder 2008).
Here are a few videos about our products:

I manage Canvas, as well as a bunch of other projects related to the intersection of 3D and AR/VR with the home.
We're only in the early innings, but Occipital's mission is to bring this whole world of what we call "spatial computing" — i.e., software that can understand and interact with its physical surroundings — to everyday life. Day to day, I get to work with really smart people that teach me a lot about things I don't know, think about how to make science fiction reality, and play with really, really cool toys.
We're hiring pretty aggressively, so drop me a line if you're interested! Company-wide openings: http://occipital.com/jobs
Fun fact: the founders are also Wolverines, which means I've technically never been employed by anyone who did not attend the University of Michigan.
