As Managing Director of Philadev, I work with startups on formation, product development, and go-to-market strategy as any/all of an advisor, investor, or operating officer.

My background is as a founder and/or C-level operator of high growth technology companies including the dotcom SEO pioneer searchbuilder and Internet video provider Sivoo.

My latest venture, Kapsul is reinventing a $70B category with premium home climate productslike room air conditioners, heaters, and dehumidifiers that people actuallylove, and we sell both hardware and software subscriptions directly toconsumers and through select retailers.Our launch product, the W5, is a 5,000 BTU connected window air conditioner that’s just 7” tall and twice as quiet as existing units. Tech Insider called it “The solution to air conditioners we’ve all been waiting for.”. I am a founder and the COO.

I serve on a number of startup boards and advisory committees, work with university entrepreneurship programs at Temple, Penn, and Drexel, and teach occasional course on entrepreneurship and technology management at the LeBow School of Business.

I am chairman of the Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory, a non-profit that helps underserved youth build resiliency and life skills.
