    • Introduction
    • For the last 10+ years, I’ve been work­ing with IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and B2B star­tups trans­form­ing con­cepts into prod­ucts, and some­times ac­qui­si­tions.

      While de­vel­op­ing web­sites in the early 2000s, I joined a com­mu­nity of open source de­vel­op­ers which even­tu­ally lead to the dis­cov­ery of Word­Press Core.

      Some odd years later I founded my first com­pany, a me­dia group con­sist­ing of 5 owned and op­er­ated mag­a­zines, both in print and dig­i­tal. Af­ter form­ing our team, which com­bined cre­ative di­rec­tors, pho­tog­ra­phers, and nar­ra­tive jour­nal­ists, we shifted our fo­cus to con­sul­ta­tive and cre­ative ser­vices. In 2011, I de­vel­oped an ad serv­ing plat­form and launched our SSP/​​DSP, which later down the line in­te­grated some­where into Ya­hoo’s code.

      A year later, I joined No­bis Tech­nol­ogy Group, a provider of var­i­ous spe­cial­ized in­ter­net ser­vices. Among these com­pa­nies is Ubiq­uity Host­ing, where my in­volve­ment was two-fold; I was in charge of de­sign­ing a new cloud prod­uct and cu­rat­ing Mo­tion, the in­fra­struc­ture man­age­ment plat­form for the users. Some­time be­fore 2016, the com­pany was ac­quired. I re­turned to New York and started a small cre­ative agency called Stel­lur, I have since launched a few prod­ucts and joined a cou­ple star­tups.

      Over the years, I have worked with the likes of Conde Nast, Google, LVMH, and other lux­ury brands. I ex­plored a mix­ture of in­dus­tries. In my most mean­ing­ful role, I lead a ma­trixed cross-func­tional team which in­cluded prod­uct de­sign, prod­uct en­gi­neers, com­bined with brand­ing and mar­ket­ing.
