He's founded 6 companies, was one of the founders of Google Docs with his company Writely, was the head of engineering at Box helping with their IPO, was an investor at Google Ventures and worked on Google Maps for 3 years, as well as helping run many of Google's products as an early technical leader at Google: Gmail, Picasa, Blogger, Page Creator, Groups and Reader (rip).
