I provide consulting CTO services in the NYC metropolitan area, primarily working with startup teams to define technology, help hire & mentor their CTOs, and to specify project and product plans to get through their MVP stage.

For a brief time I was IBM's Corporate Webmaster. I do not know how to accurately convey what that role was like as I have been told both that I was the single most critical person involved in IBM's internet operations in the 1990s as well as that I was nothing more than a glorified HTML jockey. There was a lot of sleeping under my desk in between understanding the TCP state diagram, writing programs in a variety of languages, and managing the insane growth that occurred between 1994 and 1999.

I also worked on the web sites for the 1996, 1998, and 2000 Olympic Games.

I used to write a blog at epcostello.net/epicrisis but it's decayed due to software rot and ennui.

I invest indirectly through SK Ventures.

I split time between New York City and Rhinebeck, NY and walk a puppy named River.
