Hi everyone! My name is Don Aoki and I am Head of Products at Somnology, a startup building the Plex® Sleep Scanner, a wearable digital wellness device for monitoring sleep disorders. I’ve led product teams at multiple Silicon Valley companies, most recently at Keynote Systems, one of the first SaaS companies. I was founding VP Engineering, SVP Products, and SVP Professional Services, leading product management, product development, operations, support, and consulting. I've also led engineering teams at Aspect Communications, Teknekron (TIBCO), and Oracle, where I was an early employee. I hold master’s and bachelor’s degrees in computer science from MIT and USC.

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
