Thanks for visiting. I'm a Founding Partner at CC Stratus Capital, an innovative investment firm that helps North American and European companies enter the fast-growing Chinese market through direct investment, access to significant public-sector incentives, and our network of sector-specific Market Entry Accelerators in China for cloud computing, cloud security, mobile technology, and enterprise social companies.
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. Enomaly developed the SpotCloud marketplace, the world's first multi-supplier marketplace for computing capacity, and the Elastic Computing Platform which empowers carriers, xSPs and enterprise end-user organizations to deliver secure infrastructure-on-demand (aka "infrastructure as a service" or IaaS) services to their customers and stakeholders.
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 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.
