CJ first programmed a blackjack game on a Timex Sinclair that used a tape recorder for storage. Later, he painfully laid out almost $3,000 for an IBM PS2 with a whole megabyte of RAM and a 20-megabyte hard drive. Years later, IBM took him on and he spent 15 years in their software division including stints in Singapore and Tokyo. CJ subsequently held senior positions at Allscripts and Medidata, delivering solutions for electronic health records and pharmaceutical clinical trials. CJ has a BBA in Economics from Boise State University and an MBA from the University of Notre Dame.
