What's Your NativeAdVantage:

What do you do best?

My wife says I’m best at starting things and making friends, so I’m working hard at being less friendly while finishing things. My company Sickweather is best at understanding real-time disease trends and public health prediction.

What makes you the best?

The people with whom I surround myself.  Likewise my team of epidemiologists, data scientists, designers, programmers and problem solvers are what makes Sickweather the best.

What are your aspirations?

To live sustainably off the grid and be more helpful at home with the kids. If I can do that while also building Sickweather into a global leader in real-time disease surveillance, then that’s even better.



Don’t assume – it makes an ass out of you and me.
