Key Accomplishments

I started in software development while in the Marines and continued in EDS, eventually transitioning into leadership of development teams. I started my own business while finishing my degree and developed systems for small office accounting and inventory. After returning to EDS, I was part of two startups - Parts Imager, an electronic parts catalog replacement to traditional paper and microfiche and then Dealer Systems, where EDS bought their way into the dealership software market.

I was one of 3 founders of CreateDetroit, an organization that drew establishment focus to the creative potential in Detroit.

I have been a participant in the Great Lakes Entrepreneurs Quest for the last 2 years, and have a strong desire to be part of a team that is creating something new. I won an award for my invention at GLEQ in July 2013, and have filed a patent on it.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Creative problem solving, perseverance and enthusiasm for new ideas and ways of doing things. I have an ability to learn at a very rapid pace, and adopt new technology and strategies quickly. I also have a variety of connections in the Metro Detroit area as well as with professionals in other areas of the country.
