About Dan

I've been a software engineer/architect/manager in the NY metro area for the past 12 years. I've been part of and run some awesome engineering teams building very interesting products in various capacities; sometimes as a developer, team lead and more recently in a dev leadership role. This latter responsibility has required me to complete the difficult tasks of, firstly, architecting the right dev solution and, secondly, putting together the right dev team with the required skills to implement that plan. My approach to the development process places high emphasis on collaboration, best practices, quick iteration cycles and small teams that get the work done efficiently. The goal is to offer a modern process that balances speed to market with limiting technical debt as much as possible. All that being said, I am a coder at heart with considerable experience writing Java, Objective C/Swift, Python, and JS.

I'm looking to partner with people with complementary skill sets who are looking to build kick-ass businesses that add considerable value to their user base. They need to have a strong financial and product development background. Ideally they'd have a great business idea and would have already successfully navigated their first funding round. If that sounds like you and you need an experienced technical co-founder, lets get together and see how we can make our next venture a success.
