Virtually everything in the military requires a plan—from everyday operations to war-time missions. With a rigorous process, many stakeholders, and rudimentary software (PowerPoint!!), planning is very slow. Onebrief is a collaborative software designed to make military planning fast. It turns every input into reusable building blocks and automatically keeps all planning artifacts in sync.
Before I moved to Austin to co-found Onebrief (https://onebrief.com), I spent 5 years as an Army officer. I was part of the Army's counter-Ebola efforts in Liberia and counter-ISIS campaign in Iraq. I studied Nuclear Engineering and International Relations at West Point.
As a kid, my dream was to become an inventor. I realized that dream through software engineering and entrepreneurship. I started working early, while I was still a teenager. The first app I built for money was a CGI/Perl website, in 1999. After that, I never stopped. Somehow, I still managed to finish my BS and MBA degrees along the way. Before founding Onebrief, I was Director of Product Engineering at data.world/TX and VP of Engineering at IAC/NY.
