Prior to founding Eldarion, I was at mValent where I was initially the Chief Scientist and later the CTO. I was part of the founding team, helped build the engineering organization and was heavily involved in the sale of the company to Oracle in February 2009.
Prior to mValent, I ran the team at Bowstreet responsible for standards, open source and advanced technology. I was heavily involved in standards work with the W3C, OASIS and other organizations and spoke at numerous conferences.
Before working at startups in the US, I worked in academia and as a consultant in Australia, focused on web technologies, web standards and publishing.
