About Me

Climbing in Pine Creek

I'm one of the founders of a project called Measure. We're building an open protocol that allows organizations to acquire data from individuals in a way that protects their privacy, pays them fairly, and incentivizes accuracy. Yes, it's on the blockchain. It's, you know, the future.

Prior to that I was the CEO at Crowd Science, a company I founded in 2008 with John Wainwright and Paul Neto. At Crowd Science we built analytics and machine learning-based targeting engines for online publishers. We sold the company to YuMe in 2013.

Occasionally, I also do some work on an advertising AI called Project Hyper with some other ad tech fugitives.

I have a degree in Computer Science from the University of Sydney but spent most of my time doing Philosophy. It turns out that free will does not exist.

Also, I like to climb rocks.
