Al Ramadan is a co-founding partner @ Play Bigger. Al is a technologist, a marketer and category designer. He is a product guy with unique and highly sought after marketing expertise. He cut his teeth writing Fortran 77 on a PDP/11 and a Vax 11/780 and still writes the odd piece of Python code when he needs to. He has been named as one of the most influential people in the digital economy by Time Magazine, sailed in the Americas Cup, awarded a honorary Naval Aviator by the US Navy and hiked the John Muir Trail. He has co-founded early stage companies, pioneered new markets, taken them public, won big, lost big and now has lots of grey hair. But he has never taken himself too seriously. He was born in Australia and he's really good at bringing the best out in people; kids, teenagers and adults -- they love him. He challenges them; pushes them and supports them; he helps them think big and achieve big. He is very organized and focused on results. He is data driven and likes spreadsheets, charts and diagrams. He still charges big waves and big mountain lines -- for a guy his age. His current mission is to help great technology design and dominate their categories.
