One-Line Bio

Chairman and CTO of Alfresco. I am a serial entrepreneur having co-founded Documentum and Alfresco and one of the original engineers at Ingres. I am married and have two kids. We live in Berkshire, United Kingdom.


I have had a very long and varied career in content management. I am currently the Chairman and CTO of Alfresco, an open source enterprise content management system.

In 1990, I co-founded, designed and led the development of Documentum, the leader in content management recently acquired by EMC.
For the next ten years, I help develop many of the concepts widely used in the industry today. In addition, I built Documentum's marketing and professional services organizations in Europe.

In 2001, I had the pleasure of being an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Benchmark Capital, one of the best jobs in the world.

I started my career as one of the founding engineers at Ingres where I built some of the first applications on a relational database and ultimately ran the database group.

I graduated with a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley in 1981.
