Consulting Services

I provide technology and strategic consulting services, specializing in search engine technology. I have advised large and small companies on many aspects of search engine design and use, from relevance ranking algorithms to the design of the search user experience.

My past work includes:

  • Assessing technology, both for due diligence in potential acquisitions and for deciding on internal engineering solutions.
  • Creating a technical strategy -- a coherent story -- from a loose collection of disparate ideas.
  • Drafting white papers that describe key strategic challenges facing a company, explaining complex ideas in clear, easily understood writing.
  • Working closely with attorneys on intellectual property issues related to search. I have reviewed patents, given depositions, and provided expert testimony.
