I'm a 16 year veteran of software startups and business operations. I was a successful carpenter before I found my life calling helping people achieve their dream of using software to build a better world.
As a business developer and networking guru, I provide creative solutions for businesses seeking to develop successful practices by combining fundamental and unconventional methodologies.
I guide dedicated entrepreneurs from idea conceptualization to product commercialization and beyond. Enabled by a proprietary methodology developed from my knowledge and experiences working with startups, I work with a large and trusted network of dedicated B2B service providers including software developers, website designers, branding and marketing experts, SMB investors, and independent sales personnel.
I am a firm believer in the adage "It takes a village [to raise a startup]..." I often tap my network to leverage an interesting menagerie of unique investment opportunities, ranging from sustainable urban agricultural initiatives to independent movie productions to software applications for mobile devices.
Respect, knowledge, creativity and hard work drives my engagement with each client, enabling me to deliver positive ROI from each session.
