My name is Scott Persinger and I have a long history of working on the engineering side of startups in Silicon Valley. Currently I work at remixation.com, which runs vodpod.com. Before that I was VP Engineering at gofish.com. In past lives I’ve also worked in the enterprise software and financial services sectors.
