Called a 'Wunderkind' by The New York Times, and recently voted 5th nationwide in 'Top 40 under 40 in Healthcare Innovation', Sky is a world record holder and was a member of the U.S. Cycling Team's 'Project 96' prior to the 1996 Olympics. Frustrated by the rampant doping culture in cycling, Sky retired after the 2000 Olympics and dedicated his career in search for a better solution. In 2011, Sky broke a world record using an individualized digital health approach inspired by Dr. Eric Topol, the previous holder of the record receiving a lifetime ban for drugs. This experiment was the genesis of OAthlete that helped athletes win medals at the 2012 London Olympics, receiving international media and featured in the award-winning documentary film 'Personal Gold (2015)'.
Sky has been featured in Forbes, Sports Illustrated, Outside, AlleyWatch, and speaker at conferences ranging from South by Southwest (SXSW), the New York Digital Health Conference featuring Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel, San Francisco Health 2.0 Conference featuring Chelsea Clinton, Consumer Electronics Show, The Quantified Self Conference, Verizon Healthcare & Life Science Summit, TEDx, and others. Sky is also an XPRIZE consultant and currently splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.
