My Name's Ed

I develop software products and provide consulting and development services to startups and companies of all sizes in the New Jersey/New York Metro area.

Previously, I ran creative and development teams at Foundry9, a digital marketing firm I co-founded with two friends. I produced websites and digital promotional campaigns for brands including AARP,, Amtrak, BP, Chase Freedom, Chase Paymentech, Chase Sapphire, Disney, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Southwest Airlines, Subaru and United Airlines.

We grew Foundry9 from the three of us into a company of 80+ people with offices in NYC, Wilmington and LA that was purchased by LiquidHub in 2014.
