Audience, Inc.


I am currently the Director of Host Software at Audience, Inc. Audience’s goal is to be the ears of every device.

Prior to Audience, I was the Android Platform Lead at Linaro. During my time there I lead an extremely talented group of engineers who maintained and released Linaro Android platforms on the Pandaboard, Exynos, Snowball and other boards. The unique thing about our builds was that they were built with the tip of GCC, the tip kernel and the latest Android source from AOSP. I am still in awe of what the team accomplished and continues to accomplish.

Prior to Linaro, I helped Polycom build Android based video conferencing endpoints, helped Qualcomm maintain and release their Android kernel. I also helped Google build and release the first Android devices: the G1 and the Nexus One. Previous to Android work I built a whole mess of software for a pulse pattern generator at Picosecond Pulse Labs in Boulder Colorado, my home town. Go Buffs!
