Denis Collis

Software Design Engineer

Denis is our code poet.  He can fix a car, play guitar, whip up a gourmet meal, and calculate the number of souls that exist on earth using the Fibonacci series.  He studied Mathematical Sciences, and as co-founder of an IT company that began with five people and grew to over 70 staff members, he built the first affordable, online, real time video editing application for the desktop, and developed various other systems, platforms, apps and websites.  He is now steeped in a project to build an embedded payment system, but still solves our various wicked tech problems when they arise. He has worked with tech giants like Hewlett Packard and Silicon Graphics.
