What I Do

I like to take ideas and turn them into reality, creating companies and technology from scratch or taking existing companies and making them successful.


I invented PDF and Acrobat while running Engineering at Adobe. I created the first e-commerce site on the Internet, the Internet Shopping Network. I arranged the initial funding for Yahoo!, was one of their first board members and hired Tim Koogle to be CEO. I created the first desktop publishing app for the PC. I was a founding engineer at NeXT.
