Product Design And Development

I've spent 15 years learning and perfecting the process of bringing products to market. From working with embedded software to deliver communications networks to aviation platforms to streamlining the on-boarding process between eBay and PayPal. Having gone the funding route and building a startup with over 16,000 users and 4.6M hits per day, I've since embraced the lean startup methodology. I love meeting and talking with awesome people.

Wool

Hugh Howey

For once science fiction that happens under ground instead of outer space. A pretty good book that focuses more on people and less on technology, almost to a fault. Absolutely earns the right to be in the top hundred science fiction books ever written.

Ready Player One

Ernest Cline

If you want to relive the 80s read this book. It even has virtual reality.

Stephen King

Stephen King's book about time travel and the assassination of JFK by Lee Oswald is very good writing applied to a very poor and tired plot. Also was he paid by the CIA to write this as fictional propaganda?

The Illuminatus Trilogy

Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson

This book is difficult to describe since it has a dozen stories happening at the same time, all somehow connected. Basically take some classic conspiracy theories, mix in some philosophy, deep introspection on feminism, freedom, economics, reality, plus myth and you get this book.

Python / Django Development

Need a custom website built fast and on budget?

Hire me to help you get your python / Django site working. I typically do short three to six month projects and emergency fixes. I have designers I can recommend.

Speaking Engagements

Need an interesting and engaging speaker for your event?

I've given talks on every aspect of startups, product development, and upcoming technology trends. Currently I'm focused on small business website building and marketing. I can provide case studies.

Project Review

Sometimes getting a second opinion on a projects pays dividends.

Have a project you need a second opinion on? I can take a look at your numbers, timelines, and features and tell you if you are getting a good deal.

Primer

Shane Carruth

Its a movie where the time machine is a cardboard box. So you'll need to be somewhat imaginative. Also the plot is about time paradoxes, so you'll need to pay attention.

The Fundamentals Of Caring

Rob Burnett

Many people enjoy Paul Rudd as an actor, this is one of the first films in which I've truly enjoyed his acting and believe he absolutely makes the movie good.

Passengers

Morten Tyldum

This movie was good because it was simple. The special effects were great but not too much and the plot line was to the point. I enjoyed it and its absolutely worth watching.

Solaris

Steven Soderbergh

A space station next to a dwarf sun that can bring the dead back from our memories. And go. George Clooney delivers a great performance in a pretty deep plot with an ending that is obvious only in retrospect.

AwareLabs Delivers Effective Marketing Plans For Startups

AZ Tech Beat - Derrick Yazwa

Paul Kenjora is no newbie when it comes to launching a startup. In fact, it was his experiences he had building a previous company that led to the creation of his latest venture–AwareLabs. Paul launched Blog Glue in 2008 and raised $1million in VC funds to grow the business. The early days of bootstrapping the company showed Paul that there was a lack of options and information available for startups looking to increase their marketing and PR efforts. Most founders of startups live and breath their products.
