Key Accomplishments

I make stuff happen.

I hate just talking about things.

I'm a connector; I approach opportunities and people from a "mindset of plenty" and always try to figure out what I can do to help them. I have access to funds (personal and extensive angel / VC / PE connections), talent at all levels, international networks. I'm about to launch my 4th start up in September (secret :-)

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Make. It. Happen.
