Long history of successful collaboration with partners and stakeholders in the commercialization of business concepts and opportunities.

Visit for a list of clients and projects.

As an Advisor

No "skim-the-surface" or cookie-cutter approaches to my advisory practice. Instead, deep dive explorations of a client's technology, resources, markets and strategies to create a dynamic flight plan with several viable options and alternatives in case the company hits turbulence. I'm a startup founder myself, so I understand the non-stop pressure to execute and serve as a valuable resource to execute with style, focus and precision.
