I started my first business, HardwareTechNet, in 1998, offering IT Consulting to small businesses in Holland, MI. In 2003 I joined the US Army National Guard as a Secure Communications Repairer. My job was to perform the highest level maintenance on the military’s communications equipment. In 2004-2005 I deployed to Al Taqaddum, Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom III. During this deployment I experienced the many different dynamics of life and death and left with a much better understanding of my place in this world. Upon my return, I joined forces with a fellow soldier, Wesley Almeida and started Tera Technologies, Inc. as a Rich Internet Application and General Web Application Development company specializing in Flash, Flex, PHP and MySQL. In 2007 I was married to my beautiful wife Stefanie, and saw the birth of my amazing daughter Emma.
I’ve been self employed most of my adult (and adolescent) life, and now is no exception. I am the COO and co-founder of ScientiaMobile, Inc in the Washington DC metro area. ScientiaMobile brings my project, Tera-WURFL and the official WURFL project under one roof. Luca Passani (CTO, founder of the WURFL Project) and I have been working night and day to bring better, more accurate device data and device detection solutions to market since the inception of our company in mid-2011. Together with Krishna Guda (CEO), we are bringing mobile device detection to the next level with products like WURFL Cloud and many products that I can’t mention yet :). We’re growing fast and always looking for new talent, so please check out our current job openings!
