I'm a technologist and engineering manager who has been worked in web search for the last decade. I've been an engineer, manager, and director at Excite@Home, Inktomi, Yahoo! Search, Powerset, and Microsoft(Bing).

My specialty has been managing projects at the border of software engineering and what internet companies call "science" (data analysis and applied machine learning). In particular, I managed the anti-webspam program at Yahoo! Search, the relevance and ranking program at Powerset (a semantic search startup), and the search summaries program at Microsoft (Bing).

I recently decided that 10 years in web search and 2 years at Microsoft were enough, and I'm founding a very small tech startup unrelated to web search. Stay tuned.
