Thanks for visiting!
I'm a serial entrepreneur and company builder, active as an investor, advisor, and Board member with a number of high-growth companies at the intersection of security, cloud, and mobile, the same space in which I've built and successfully exited several companies, and in which I hold several patents.
I'm currently Chief Technology Officer - Safe Identity, in Intel's Security Group.
I was President of PasswordBox, the leading digital identity company, leading up to PasswordBox's acquisition by Intel.
I was also Founding Partner at CC Stratus Capital, an investment firm that helps North American and European companies enter the fast-growing Chinese market.
Previously, I was Chairman and CEO of Enomaly, a pioneer and leader in the cloud computing space, culminating in the acquisition of Enomaly by Virtustream in 2011.
Before that, I was the founder and CEO/CTO of Assurent Secure Technologies, a SaaS company in the IT Security space that was acquired in 2006 by TELUS, a Global 1000 corporation. At Assurent, I led the creation of the world's leading threat intelligence capabilities, which today power 48 of the world's top 50 IT security product companies, as well as leading financial services, high-tech, law enforcement, and national intelligence organizations around the world. Subsequent to the acquisition of Assurent, I served as Chief Security & Technology Officer at TELUS, ensuring the success of the Assurent acquisition and playing a key role in several breakthrough multi-hundred-million dollar wins for TELUS.
Since 2006, I've served on the Boards and Advisory Boards of many highly regarded early-stage companies in the IT infrastructure, security, and SaaS sectors, such as PasswordBox, Elliptic Technologies, Veracode, Enomaly, NetClarity, Virima, Stonewall Software, and Fonolo.
I'm often quoted by the press, and have appeared on the cover of CIO Magazine, as well as frequent appearances in media such as the New York Times, CBS, NBC, USA Today, etc. and hundreds of technology publications. I hold a Ph.D. and multiple patents in the field of software security.
