I’m from Rhode Island. Started life as a musician and became a programmer in Boston. Joined my first start-up in 1976. Yes, they had start-ups then. Worked as a programmer in the original Digital Equipment (DEC) mill and then later at Data General during the Soul of a New Machine era. Was an IT consultant for years in Boston, New York, and New Jersey, and then moved to where the sun shines in California. Spent time as a management consultant at Index and left consulting in 1999, and returning to technology. Have been a CEO several times in consulting, the internet, and software. Joined Atlassian in 2005.

I took up drawing a few years ago, and draw stuff like this…
This is August Rodin, one of my heros. I drew this from a sculpture of Rodin at the Cantor Museum at Stanford University.

Here’s more of my art here..

    You are one impressive, inspiring guy. Heading off to Iraq here in the months ahead… Perhaps over the year+ ahead, I’ll have time to reflect and think through how I too, can get more juice out of the orange.

  4. Louie — Thanks man. ou underestimate yourself. I am glad I am not in Iraq but I am very very glad that people like you are there. Makes me sleep at night. Take care.

  5. Jeffrey Walker – you have one eclectic and amazing story to tell. I knew that you were a unique individual when I knew you way back in Roseland Partners days.

    I am sending you my positivity – to add your stock!

  6. My husband Keith is in F Ground right now–22 days– doing induction therapy and “waiting” for the results. Thanks for blogging about your cancer and your embracing of it.

    Positive thoughts going your way–
