You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I have built several startup businesses at Hewlett-Packard; the last sold for $89M. I was one of the founders of that business, managing the total solution development and building a global team to sell and deliver. I have worked on telecommunications, video conferencing, print and publishing, and 3D graphics technologies.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am a generalist: I have a software engineering degree, I can create business models and crunch spreadsheets, design innovative products and sell solutions, even write and negotiate contracts. I am eternally optimistic, seeing the world as full of inifite possibility. I have connections in the high tech industry both as a sounding board but also for potential partnerships.

As an Advisor

Advising should be a collaborative effort. Together we create a plan for your business and we check in regularly to keep you on track and adjust as you learn. Ideally, we'd do some customer development together so that we have a good understanding of the market unmet need you are pursuing.
