I’m a British-American living in Edinburgh, Scotland. I grew up in the People’s Republic of China.
I have worked for a variety of tech startups in the healthcare, retail, and education sectors. Currently I’m the CEO at Administrate, a software startup that provides online software for training providers and a board member of TuringFest, one of the best tech events in Europe.
Prior to that I was CIO and VP of Operations at Sentry Data Systems, Inc., a healthcare pharmacy technology and informatics company based in South Florida and I also served on the board of Current Health (formerly Snap40), a healthcare AI company.
