    Most Impressive Accomplishment - I was #2 & Director of Product at my previous startup, Mobiata. Mobiata made FlightTrack, one of the top 3 grossing travel apps of all time. Two of Mobiata's apps (FlightTrack & Expedia Hotels) are present on every demo iPad within Apple's retail stores. Mobiata was acquired by Expedia in 2010, and I lead the team that designed & built Expedia's suite of mobile booking applications.

    Most Impressive Accomplishment - I joined my first startup 18 months after I graduated from college. I convinced the founding team that I was the guy to build them a call center and CRM platform - the core of their business. I knew next to nothing about auto-dialing, multi-user systems or databases. 5 years later, the system was in use at dozens of sites around the country, and we sold the business to SunGard Data Systems.

    Most Impressive Accomplishment - In 2010, I joined Mobiata, a small startup building mobile travel apps. Within six months I had become iOS team lead and the company had been acquired by Expedia. After the acquisition, we immediately began working on the Expedia Hotels booking application. I led the team in building a beautiful first release of the app in just under seven weeks.
