Areas of Expertise

  • Startups, Strategy and Execution

    I'm an entrepreneur, which means I've worn a lot of hats, mostly successful, sometimes not. That brings an experience level that has been acknowledged by others as superior. I've been executive/board level in public companies, but prefer the initial phases. If you want to know "What to do and how to do it", it is likely that I can help you or know someone who can. I won't waste your time.
