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.
