How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I have been on both sides of the table - as a seller and as a buyer in a variety of deal situations. From representing a small startup (I've been a co-founder or on the management team of seven) in negotiations with a larger corporation to negotiating licensing transactions between two gorillas (Kodak & Microsoft). I am methodical, thorough and persistent in my representation of clients and work until the deal is complete. I bring that commitment and intensity to my work as an Advisor.

I dive into the details while maintaining a wholistic view of the venture's needs and objectives and based on my experience am able to cut through the noise to pull out the more salient issues and areas of focus. I work best with founders, inventors, teams that are fully engaged and committed to their ventures while having an open mind for options and paths to success.
