With more than 20 years of engineering and management experience, I have managed various teams at Adobe such as the Flash Lite team, Flash Mobile Authoring, Flash Cast and Adobe Illustrator. I was also responsible for creating and developing Adobe’s entire mobile authoring strategy, now deployed across the entire Adobe Creative Suite.
Aside from managing experience, I have shipped leading and award winning, industry-standard applications such as Flash Lite (deployed in over two billion devices), Flash Authoring, Adobe Creative Suite, Adobe Mobile Device Central, Adobe Illustrator, SVG, Adobe Pagemill, Micrografx Windows Draw, and Deneba Canvas.
In 2007 I founded and was the CEO of Ansca Inc, which makes the Corona SDK and successfully closed a $1.5 million series A round.
I am also strategic advisor for several startups and Fortune 500 companies. And I do a lot of speaking engagements on entrepreneurship, mobile landscape/gaming/market and mobile strategies.
In June of 2012, I co-founded a new company called Lanica, Inc. A startup which waslaunched and was funded by Appcelerator’s Innovator Fund. Lanica’s focus was on providing professional game developers the tools they need in order to create immersive, compelling and successful games. Lanica’s flagship product, Platino, was sold to Black Gate Games in late 2014.
In December 2014, I co-founded RCTSports, a wearable sensor company, doing tracking and analytics for college and professional teams/individuals to provide insights into athletic performance.
I also run @codinginswift, a twitter page dedicated to the Swift programming language, and Miami Entrepreneurs Startup Bootcamp, a meetup group all about entrepreneurship, and lastly, I run the South Florida Swift Programming Group, a meetup group on the Swift Programming Language to teach, learn and share all about Swift.
