    I am actively searching for startup opportunities in the Boston, MA and SF Bay area. My interests (as you can see) are varied, but I generally enjoy working in fields where I feel that existing actors are not innovating, and where my contribution can make an impact. Ideally I hope to work as a junior developer in a small team of developers, or to project manage a small team of developers and designers.
