Along the way, he founded 4 companies as an entrepreneur, raised vcfunding, and sold 1. Ted loves to write software. No, He really,really, loves to write software. So much he can hardly think of it aswork. Ted especially loves to help solve the hard strategy problems incombining business and software.
The past 2 years have been filled with learning the ins and outs ofthe Android Operating System and how best to write software forphone-tablet form factor devices (IOS/Android). Lately, Ted dove headfirst into building apps using HTML5. When he is not writing code, youwill find me either spending time with his family or scuba diving.
