Microsoft alum with internet & software focus. My main technical interests are the application of AI, machine learning, analytics and big data. I have several ongoing projects in those areas. Completed.com applies machine learning to large data sets to measure, rate, score and track human professional review activities. Our goal is to improve rating platforms and to leverage user generated content while applying technology to make it safer, more reliable, more relevant and better quality.
Cloud Commerce Consulting provides advisory services. We focus on technology strategies (especially analytics, big data and machine learning) and scale strategies for growth companies (including sales and marketing and operational transformations). In addition to machine learning we are interested in broader artificial intelligence applications.
I also worked at Microsoft as a manager at the Redmond headquarters. My team worked across business units on product development projects for identity (Active Directory), communications and integration (BizTalk, Host Integration, RFID, Windows Communications), workflow (Windows Workflow and some early workflow modeling projects), commerce (Microsoft Commerce Server) and I was involved in the early business strategy efforts related to modeling language projects that led to Oslo and the 'M' language.
My background includes analytics platforms (Chaikin Analytics and Brand.com), big data information and search technologies (Completed.com, Brand.com and ChaCha Search) and SaaS commerce and business platforms often with an emphasis on predictive analytics (Ontario Systems, Ecometry, Sapago).
Cloud Commerce Consulting has several practices aimed at helping companies develop internal artificial intelligence, analytics and big data practices. CCC also does growth stage consulting that focused on monetization and organic growth programs and operational systems to stay and grow more efficient and agile. Cloud Commerce also does startup consulting including seed and 'A' round fundraising, interim startup and growth strategies.
