Key Accomplishments

I have 13 years of work experience as a consultant / software architect / entrepreneur. I was the first employee and chief architect of two successful software companies in the RFID and Ticketing industries ( and and now I'm looking to launch as a founder. In addition, I currently own and operate an e-commerce site that does well over $1 million in sales annually. On a personal level, I'm a fun guy that is always ready to make people laugh--most people would not guess I'm a tech guy :)

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Though my background is in software development, I tend to see the "bigger picture" better than most engineers which helps me create simple, elegant solutions to customer problems. I have a great head for business & finance and a strong work ethic.

As an Advisor

I have bootstrapped an eCommerce co. to millions in sales as well as been a key part of some angel backed software as a service (SaSS) companies. Whether it's technology, Internet marketing or general business strategy I have almost 15 years of tech experience to draw from. I'm always excited to help brainstorm with other entrepreneurs about how they can grow their business.
