Key Accomplishments

I have spent my entire career as an entrepreneur - in stand alone companies that were acquired or went public, nested start-up business units in established companies and large joint ventures. I am passionate about building amazing products and services that people want to *use* and will become loyal users of. I love to work, think and do. Every job I have held was because it taught me something and/or gave me the chance to work with incredibly talented and smart people. If that isn't there, then what's the point?

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

An interesting mix of skills from product development, business strategy and operations but more importantly focus, resolve, vision, flexibility and a deep commitment to the success of people and team.
