Key Accomplishments

I thrive on creating solutions to tough problems with challenging constraints. I've done this for clients of the production company I started, individually when I was a consultant / contractor, and as an employee.

I love taking deep dives into areas I've never worked in before and synthesizing what I learn in a short amount of time. I approach challenges with an attitude of "anything is possible" even with all the roadblocks that knowingly come in any project.

He has a lot of experience in creating startups and having him in them will look like having 5 people at once.
