What I Do

I'm a software engineer who has built platforms that supported millions of active users a day. I'm always on the lookout for cool new companies to help out.


* The last company I cofounded (Dress Rush, now Tailored) earned a spot in 500 Startups' Fall 2011 batch. We did $100k in revenue in the first 3 months after launch.

* The company I currently run (RestlessDev) does a mix of social application development and consulting. At one point our Facebook applications (gifting apps and social quizzes) supported 3 million daily active users.

* I program a lot on the side, too. Particular interests include databases and language design. I create an open source business rules engine called CodaServer (http://codaserver.com) and a templating framework called Toasty (https://github.com/18thstreetmike/toasty) that lets users build their own markup language extensions to HTML.

What I'm Looking For

I'm looking to partner with well-funded companies and entrepreneurs looking to build out their products, whether they need assistance on Version 1 or Version 32. Contract inquiries only, please.
