Key Accomplishments

Three exits. Founded Interactive Agency when I was 23 and grew to 100 people. Five patents ranging from web analytics, data visualization, crowdsourcing and proxy data capture. I believe in IP.

Have been on the ground level starting five different startups. Three were successful, two were not. Last position was VP, Product and Usability at Tealeaf (sold to IBM for $440 Million.)

I have been in senior roles ranging from CTO to CEO. No task is too trivial. I am a roll-up-your-sleeves and get in it kind of guy. I love working with great teams, building great products.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'm a product guy at heart, with lots of hands on- make it happen- experience. This ranges from fund raising, to technical architectures, to helping with the IxD.

With a Product forward attitude, I can get in the trenches with the engineers, add value in design reviews and can be a driving force with investors. I can craft or polish investor decks and guide a fundraising strategy.

I love working with smart people, making incredible products.

As an Advisor

Startups are all-hands-on-decks. An advisor is usually helpful for having an outside perspective on things and then helping to target what really needs work. Then diving in to fix it. Slipping product development deadlines? Lack of funds? Need more customer traction? Conversion funnels are performing?

The key is to understand the business, understand the objectives and then set the team up for success.
