How I can help you

I'm a technology executive and entreprenuer who's been in all sized companies from "three guys and a whiteboard" all the way to a multi-billion dollar, global enterprise.  In each I was responsible for all aspects of my business including things like forecasting, planning, skills development, and contracts/legal/IP.  In my startup, I was also involved in raising money from individual investors and VCs.  


I love writing business plans and imagining how a great idea can turn into an on-going business!  It's so much fun to hear a story and then think through all the various pieces required for a successful business.  I love to help make sure that we've identified all of the aspects needed for a great business and then getting creative thinking about different ways to solve each piece of the puzzle.


As a sidenote, I also love being a part of technology development and have been involved with that at every career stop.  Whether it's web, mobile, in the cloud or in your office, I've hired and written contracts for large and small off-shore and on-shore teams and executed transitions between all of them when needed.
