Entrepreneur. Simian. Runner. Rugger. Moutaineer. Espresso aficionado. Mad philosopher. Co-Founder / COO / Nerd-Herder at Reelio Labs.
Wharton "40 Under 40".

I am an Entrepreneur and Technologist, specializing in Tech, Energy, and Aerospace. I have built great things in organizations large (Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Navy) and small (GroupLiving, Open Sky Energy, PennDSL), and spend every day immersing myself in the incredible knowledge and experience of those around me. From time to time I am given the great privilege to speak to groups of future entrepreneurs and builders about my experiences.

I have been trained in engineering and business, self-taught entrepreneurship and startups, and endlessly debated the merits of classic sci-fi and new music. When not in the office scribbling on whiteboards, I'm a constant fixture at local coffee shops, mainlining espresso and pounding away on the laptop or mentoring new entrepreneurs and startups. Along the way I ended up as a combat veteran, Div I track athlete, men’s league rugby player, and alpine mountaineer. I love lamp.
