Key Accomplishments

I have spent the bulk of my career leading various strategic business functions / initiatives for software companies. From a functional perspective, I have extensive experience in product management, marketing, strategy and business development. From a technology experience, I have spent the past decade in mobile, enterprise software, information security, internet infrastructure, and big data analytics. From a relationship experience, I have broad and deep relationships in information security and mobile operators.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

My passion is identifying and launching new businesses, which I have done from the ground up as part of start ups and have also launched new businesses inside of larger organizations. I have played many roles and enjoy wearing multiple hats - biz planning / fundraising, product management, marketing, sales / business development. I am interested to network with technical co-founders that have experience developing innovative software products, and am actively looking for a lead developer with a strong distributed systems background.
