GP is Senior Vice President of Technology at Advice Local. In 2009 GP connected with Todd Bryson and together they created Local Site Submit, Local Search Tool, and Local Report Tool. Today these three revolutionary services are merged and stand at the core of the Advice Local technologies.
Contemplating problems and solutions, GP can actually visualize the data flowing and how to manage it. He envisions the blanks and can see how to fill them with code in various languages to create a running software prototype capable of doing the required task.
GP grew up working in Unix/Linux and was teaching IT in private schools at age 19. At 22 he actively explored his passion for art and images, working in many resorts as a photographer and graphic designer. During this artistic interlude GP continued to study and learn, acquiring new languages such as PHP, Java/JS, SQL and more.
An IT pro by degree and a designer by passion, GP enjoys art & music and good conversation. And he has indeed been known to discuss Java while sipping java!
