    Previously, he was President and CTO of Fossil Group, Connected Devices, using fashion and design to make technology more beautiful and useful. Before that, I founded: Elemental Machines (IoT for complex processes), Misfit (wearables; acquired by Fossil for $260m), AgaMatrix (biosensors for diabetes), FireSpout (natural language processing; acquired by Ask Jeeves). Before doing startups, I worked at Microsoft Research in NLP under Kai-Fu Lee, worked on a PhD in Linguistics at MIT under Noam Chomsky, and studied math at UIUC. When not playing with my two kids, I enjoy dreaming about the future and trying to figure out how to learn faster and more effectively.
