Key Accomplishments

Recently I’ve led venture-backed startups as CEO, COO and CFO, navigating the chaos of startup life from first pitch deck, through VC funding, team building, scaling, acquisition and integration into a Fortune 100 company.

In between startups, I served in executive leadership roles at entertainment companies where I developed a reputation for helping studios embrace disruptive technologies historically viewed as threats. After Disney acquired my previous startup, I helped create and run Disney’s first in-house social media division, devising and executing social media strategies on behalf of Disney’s major business units and iconic brands. At Warner Bros., I was part of the Corporate Development team tasked with helping the studio transition to digital, heading up investments, acquisitions and strategic partnerships to build the studio’s foundation for a digital future.

Steve has been a fantastic mentor over the last year. He has selflessly and enthusiastically shared his advice and time. From his CEO experi ... ence, he has advised me through significant challenges at Lendsnap in different phases of company development. I can recommend Steve as someone who is both transparent and tactful. I look forward to working together more in the future.
