Director of Engineering @ Twitter

I am a computer scientist, engineering leader and entrepreneur. I am currently a part of the Ads leadership team at Twitter as a Director of Engineering. This team is responsible for growing the Twitter ads business into a multi-billion-dollar revenue engine.

Previously, I was a co-founder at Dasient, an internet security company I co-founded in 2008 and sold to Twitter in 2012.
