A Georgia Tech graduate, Dan is a trained computer scientist who meticulously crafts ideas into scalable products. One for over-communication and a compulsive attention to detail, he coordinates Vaporware’s relationships with clients and partners, leads all product management, and still contributes quite a bit of code and design. Besides work he enjoys road cycling, board games, spending time with his son and wife, and hacking the latest gadgets.
