All my life, “helping people learn to do cool things” has been my passion. I’ve done that as a 12 year old expert skier, giving pointers to adults on the slopes. I’ve done that during the desktop publishing revolution, giving designers incredible new creative skills and giving commercial printers the ability to reproduce those designs more profitably and with higher quality. I’ve done that as a pioneer in online learning, giving companies tools and techniques to train their staff and customers. And I’ve done that as a mentor and advisor to startup entrepreneurs, giving them the practical know-how and hands-on engineering help they need to bring their dreams, aspirations and ideas to life.

Core competencies span nearly every aspect of tech startups: From raising money to exit strategies. From team building to leadership and a culture of sustainable commitment. From ideation and market validation through software development and engineering leadership to scaling and fault tolerant systems to commercialization and patents. From sales and marketing to strategic partnerships. From business models to supporting strategies and tactics and being ever responsive to change.

Let’s do this!
