about: I work in Business Development on the Startup team at Amazon Web Services and am a co-founder of Dishcraft Robotics.

Previously, I co-founded SpeakerText (speakertext.com), a interactive/social layer on top of online video, and Humanoid (gethumanoid.com), a crowdsourced virtual labor service that uses machine learning to track worker reputation on Mechanical Turk and ensure quality.

In previous lives, I fought forest fires in Montana & Alaska for the US Forest Service, worked as a freelance news reporter for the NY Times, and drove a 911 ambulance in Harlem and the South Bronx.
