Key Accomplishments

Spent years immersed in the Austin high-tech startup culture. In between fast-paced software startups, I've ventured out several times to start my own companies.

Until Acton (biz school), I didn't know how to discern a repeatable idea that could scale vs a "hustle" business that just pays the bills.

It took me 40+ years to discover that my favorite way to communicate complex ideas is through concept videos. I have a special talent of listening to complex ideas and simplifying them in cartoon drawings.

So, while I've been applying my special talents as a software Product Director - I could help almost any team.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Highly creative: I can distill the best ideas for the team.
Bridge art / logic: I can bring ideas together from two cultures.
Efficiency: I can make processes more efficient.

As an Advisor

I would like to take my knowledge with Salesforce and SaaS to open new markets and create innovative product strategies for others.
