Developing solutions to some of the world's most important problems
I co-founded (along with Keith Rosema and Alan Caplan) the Vulcan Proving Ground, an internal incubator dedicated to growing Vulcan's strategic technology portfolio.
My focus areas included mobile devices and wearables, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision. I also worked with teams interested in unmanned aerial vehicles, immersive environments (AR/VR), brain injury science, and molecular diagnostics. I served as CTO; I was responsible for technology scouting and product development.
I also spent a year working closely with Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen to create a technology investment roadmap that bridged his philanthropic and strategic investment goals. While in that capacity, I helped organize Vulcan Inc.’s technology response to the 2014 Ebola crisis in West Africa in conjunction with the United Nations, USAID, CDC, and multiple NGOs.
