I’ve been obsessed with web site performance for the past decade and found that the problems that I encounter are generic. The same pains plague all site owners. It was this realization that set me on the path of research and development that I remain on today. Before taking the role of VP of Acceleration at Radware, I was CTO at Strangeloop Networks, where I was instrumental in authoring many issued and pending patents. Before helping create Strangeloop, I also served as the CTO at IronPoint Technology. I’m also the founder of Eclipse Software, a Microsoft Certified Solution Provider that I sold in 2001. In more than 25 years of professional development experience, I’ve taken the roles of entrepreneur, software architect, and technology innovator. I am interested by the business, psychological, and technical aspects of web performance and have spoken at industry events, such as Microsoft TechEd, DevSum, DevCon5, SDN, and the Velocity Web Performance & Operations Conference.
