You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Entrepreneur • Business Management • Creative Direction • Startups • Corporate management

Key Accomplishments

In Short, I can typically see the forest through the trees, and the trees through the forest. I like tearing ideas to pieces to see the impact of the individual parts and reassemble the need, prospects, social change, and profitable area. I enjoy working a crowd, both from the dias and through networking. I am comfortable presenting to investors, and have been successful. I have been described as the geek who looks at other peoples shoes, meaning that I can identify peoples positions and speak to them in their language. I am a jack of all trades who can do everything, just not everything at once. I delegate and manage.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am flexible and know how to jump in to make things right. I believe in serving the customer as a long term strategy. Doing right is almost always the best choice, and it makes the customer happy.

As an Advisor

For those companies I advise, I typically review a business plan or deck, and offer thoughts. I dive into the tech as a user and look for holes. I look for connections in my network, and offer my opinion. If you choose to go another way, that is fine.
