I've always been entrepreneurial at heart - whether as cultural architect and national speaker, the CEO of a ecommerce company, or a co-founder of a digital marketing company. I believe that you have to take ownership of your current situation in order to move forward and make waves. Eventually, I came to realize that it's not technology, per se, that drives me, but rather, the creativity it allows for solving problems and finding new opportunities. The biggest thrill in life is to help those around me realize their dreams and launch them.
I'm incredibly lucky to be able to say that each day of my professional life has been different from the one before it. Currently I spend my time working with some really amazing, intelligent people from today's start-up scene to other veterans from the late 90's dot-com / Silicon Alley days.
