I was the first employee at Naughty Dog, and as such wrote around half the code for Crash Bandicoot, as well as a bunch of code for Crash 2. I also produced the music (composed by Josh Mancell) for Crash 1, 2, 3, and Crash Team Racing.|
After that, I co-founded travel search company ITA Software with Jeremy Wertheimer and Carl de Marcken; this company powers Kayak, Orbitz, Hipmunk, and many airline websites. Google bought ITA Software in 2010 (closed Apr 2011) for ~$700M.
Now I'm working on Smart, Simple, Safe Email at Inky (http://inky.com). Check out Inky for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android -- works with IMAP, Exchange, and POP!
