After receiving a Masters in Computer Science at Brown University in 1983, studying under Prof Andy van Dam, Sklar stayed at Brown serving as a CS lecturer until 1990. He then joined the startup Electronic Book Technologies to help create DynaText, one of the first wave of commercial products dedicated to creating and distributing electronic books.
EBT was just the start of decades of startups, in industries as varied as Travel, Construction-Project Management, and Inventory Control. Currently, Sklar constructs real-time data-analytics pipelines for Tumblr in New York City.
