About Scott

I've been a technology founder and entrepreneur for almost 30 years, having created both private and public companies on both coasts including Silicon Valley and right here in Atlanta. My specific expertise is the ability to bring leading-edge technology solutions to a raw idea along with creative insight, business strategy, and rapid execution to incubate new ventures - from napkin idea to launch to growth to exit.

Right now I'm looking for a new challenge to pursue. I'm on the hunt for the right combination of partner and idea, market size and potential. There's nothing more exciting than a new venture. I simply love startups. I love the collaboration, the learning, the creative process, and I especially enjoy architecting and building award-winning intellectual property that can disrupt markets.

In addition to technology build and execution, I can also bring other talent, time, my network of relationships, and a headful of common business sense and experience to give our next endeavor a head start.

Former exits... Bytewise (industrial automation), Datasoft (fintech), iLumen (D&B for private companies), RocketStream (accelerated data delivery), Voyant (broadband for airlines), Leadblossom (high performance data search), Davinci (multi-channel marketing), CUTC (hospitality), HotFlock (hotel normalization technologies).

Currently focused on high performance front-ends (React), mobile (React Native), horizontally scalable middleware proxies (Erlang), cloud data systems (Mongo, ElasticSearch), and gorgeous user experiences. Also enjoy Python, C, C++, SQL, LESS, JS, Node, and getting my head around blockchain, machine learning, and AI.

Love SaaS, mobile, dashboards, ecommerce, fast fashion, video streaming, big data, analytics, smart people, low hanging fruit, ux design, industries screaming for next generation solutions, work hard play hard, and blowing customers (and investors) away.
