I'm an angel investor, arguably strategic advisor and entrepreneur who understands what it takes to launch and commercialize technologies and tech companies.
I co-developed a pioneering analytics platform, co-founded two companies and created a European joint venture with a publicly traded company – all of which were acquired. Along the way, I managed to $20M in annual revenue, negotiated more than 500 contracts, opened 7 office locations and managed more than 200 staff in the US and Europe. In addition, I've invested in more than 20 companies, with 6 acquisitions and one IPO to date.
I was co-founder of Atomic - one of the fastest growing SF Bay Area companies for 5 years running, and one of Silicon Valley's premiere PR and social agencies for startups. Atomic was Technology PR Agency of the Year in 2010 and was acquired in 2011.
At Atomic, I helped advise on the communications strategies around the launches, growth and exits of more than 75 high profile tech cos. including Photobucket, Linkedin, Bebo, Rapt, Xign, Splunk!, Mint, Dropbox, Jobvite, Smule, Arcsight, Leap Motion, Delphix, Automatic, Rocket Fuel, Lending Club, BrightRoll, Fountain and more.
Oh, and I watch an unbelievable amount of youth soccer and basketball, try to keep up in a Master's swim program and hike all over Marin's hills and mountains with my best friend/wife.
