Key Accomplishments

I have spent my entire career building an extremely interconnected set of skills. I have experience in everything from health insurance to foreign exchange and online media to food services. In everything I have done I have always approached it from a design thinker aspect whether it was the code I wrote, architectures I conceived or teams I managed. I have worked with a number of large and small companies, I am as comfortable in a small start-up as I am in a large corporate.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring a deep understanding of how to deliver a product from inception to market. I am able to take on the technology, design and product roles very easily. In addition to that I have a bunch of early stage and founding start-up experience.

As an Advisor

I generally prefer to work face-to-face and with a whiteboard or large sheet of paper in a discussion format. I like working with people who are open to new perspectives and are open to change.
