I’m the CTO and CISO at Handle Financial (aka PayNearMe). I’m an entrepreneur who has designed and launched numerous payment systems.

I LOVE flying, especially gliders. Soaring takes me hundreds of miles up and down the mountains of California and over the deserts of the American west. Hours of deep concentration, while experiencing the beauty of some of the most wonderful and hostile terrain in the world. Flow at its finest. Flight in its purest form.
