About Leo

Hello! As a Software Engineer with 9 years of experience among a variety of technologies and I am very motivated to devoting my time to co-founding a startup.

I'm looking to meet a technical cofounder and figure out if we mesh well. Ideas as we know it, are a dime a dozen, and I'm not concerned about the particulars so much as finding a good partner. Please no Cryptocurrency folks!

Any project I work on is going to be focused on created a new technology, not simply a CRUD app, so let's be ambitious in our brainstorming. My goal is to invent a novel data product with business appeal.
