standpoint
but also as a Senior member of the team, providing the junior members of the team with clear
direction and
instruction. He lead a number of initiatives, including being the lead java developer on a standalone Free

a move into
the market currently dominated by fancast.com and hulu.com"

excellent
software developer who can remarkably handle both backend engineering projects as well as

ability to
understand the business in addition to technical sides of the project, as well as to juggle multiple

instrumental in
launching most of major initiatives for AOL Television. I would definitely work with him again."

get a

I wish the
best of luck for all his future endeavors."
