As the first full-time employee at a venture-backed gaming startup, I led teams shipping products internationally, architected backend systems serving millions of users, and contributed substantially to their open-source engine.

My real-time browser-based multiplayer gaming service, GamingPeak, was a leading online card-and-board-game destination after Microsoft’s Gaming Zone shut down in 2006. After hosting over fifty thousand players, thousands of live tournaments, and countless chat messages, it was acquired by Game Closure in 2011.

After a brief stint at Google, I now work for Mozilla on Firefox OS.
