Aki Iskandar is an Entrepreneur and software architect with over two decades of programming experience. He has worked as a consultant for Microsoft, Compuware, Progressive Insurance, Allstate Insurance, KeyBank, Ernst & Young, and Charles Schwab, to name a few. His last full time job, before leaving the corporate world in 2011, was at PNC (the 5th largest bank in the USA) where he served as an Enterprise Architect on their Enterprise Architecture team. During that time, he served as a core member on PNC’s Architecture Review Board - which was responsible for creating reference architectures, reviewing the architectural diagrams for IT projects that were in the tens of millions of dollars in size, and establishing IT Governance for the corporation.

For cerebral engagement and pleasure, he enjoys trying to figure out how magic tricks and illusions performed by his favorite magicians and illusionists were done - and also spends considerable time studying and thinking about artificial intelligence.
