I'm a former Microsoft guy working in the world of software and startups. Occasionally over caffeinated & opinionated.

Who am I? Who are you?

I’m from a small town in Maine and I’ve lived as far away as Washington. While building software is fun, I prefer to be a part of the early stage development process in a creative capacity. In the past I’ve written on everything from hacking linux graphics drivers to work for HP laptops to American Narcism attacking obesity. The thought of becoming more active in the world of blogging has me both excited and nervous. With that in mind, let’s get e-coffee.

How many actual apps have you developed that have made it to the app stores?
Great question.. I have developed 2, one of which is a top Lifestyle app on Google Play and has generated over $1MM in revenues, 75K+ likes, and over 8MM downloads. The other is a simple weather app with 15 downloads :)
What was it really like to work for Microsoft?
The best part about working at a large and innovative company is the sense of community. Every one is working towards the same goal, which is a nice feeling to have. I do miss the camaraderie. It was an interesting time to be there.
Why did you leave Maine and then come back?
Why did you leave Maine and then come back? Leaving Maine was the best decision that I could have ever made. Boston, NYC, San Francisco, Redmond, Seattle, Charlotte, Long Island, Nassau - you start to get perspective on culture and people in general.
