Biography

Jeff was the third employee of Atari’s International Home Computer Division, responsible for its business development throughout Europe and the Middle East.

He joined former Stanford classmates as a founding team member of Electronic Arts in 1982. There he led the company’s international expansion from inception until its IPO seven years later. With the Internet and the dominating role of software development, he founded a series of software companies after leaving Electronic Arts, all results of ideas and skills of recent graduates from Stanford.

For its first 3 years he served as Executive Director at Skydeck Berkeley, the University’s only cross-discipline startup accelerator, and today he
sits on Boards and is a Partner/Associate at the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies. He was a co-founder of HolodeckVR in Munich and is a
major advisor.

Jeff obtained his undergraduate education and MBA at Stanford University, studied and lived in Firenze, Italia, and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 50 years.
