Endymion
207

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I left for the big city (well, Pittsburgh) to earn degrees in electrical engineering and German from CMU. I began my software career in CMU Robotics, writing a C compiler for a six-jointed arm that later beat me at ping pong. Then came IBM mainframe channel extension (don't ask!), and a Star Trek-like five year mission to design the new Boston subway control system.
But I just couldn't stay away from CMU. Working with the founder of the Language Technologies Institute, I embarked on a successful research career in computational linguistics, leading teams of researchers and developers to push the boundaries of NLP (while co-authoring six patents). I survived the tech bubble, helped sell a $6 million patent portfolio — and got much better at ping pong.
These days I'm rediscovering the entrepreneurial spirit I've had since publishing a comic book series in high school, and doing independent projects with several startups.
I'm also a licensed Realtor (10+ years), volunteer firefighter, and photographer/videographer.
