Founded & IPO'd Katipult | 20 Years Experience Managing Development Teams

I'm the original CTO for Katipult (FUND.V). I helped the company grow from 3 to 50. I was instrumental in hiring the team, creating the technical sales team, assisting with funding rounds to go public and preparing the SOC II documentation.

I now work with a few companies where I take a hands on technology leadership role (CTO) to create high value teams. I'm experienced in covering the gaps that exist until it's time to hire onshore of offshore labour.

I currently split my time between my office …
