Born and raised in Idaho where I take advantage of the many outdoor activities available, including biking, hiking, and remote backpacking. Led Zeppelin, Smashing Pumpkins, and NIN occupy my ipod. I studied communications at Boise State University. I cut my teeth in the software industry with MySQL where I also gained a strong appreciation for open source. Positions at Sun Microsystems and other exciting startups prepared me for a spot on the great Neo4j sales team.
