You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

From 2008 to 2010 I was President of the Professional and Technical Consultants Association (PATCA). I am a senior life member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and a member of the Consultants Network of Silicon Valley. I have been an instructor at Foothill College in the Product Realization Certificate Program, teaching successful new product introduction skills. I hold a BSEE degree in Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University.

I am active in helping technology startup companies. I have participated in angel investor groups and advises startup companies. I have advised dozens of startup companies on technical and funding issues. I have mentored startups at Techstars and Cleantech Open. I have been a reviewer for NSF SBIR grants. As founder of my own company, I have dealt with issues of funding, product development, marketing, sales, and finance, giving me the experience to advise others. Voler Systems is a member of a technology consortium, the Product Realization Group, which provides all the services to introduce new technology products. I started and led two forums for CEOs of small companies to discuss issues of importance to them.
