He’s been coding since the 1970’s, on platforms ranging from embedded systems to supercomputers.
He helped port the Mach kernel to IBM mainframes, and UNIX System V to PC’s.
He is former Vice President of trading floor infrastructure engineering for Chase Manhattan Bank, former NASA, and a U.S. Air Force veteran.
Today, Steve and his family operate an innovation space in Livermore, California.
