Wide range of accounting, finance, strategy, and operational skills that underpin a strong creative, entrepreneurial drive. Co-founded, founded, and managed several venture-backed startups where I have demonstrated passion, commitment, determination, and the ability to communicate with people up and down and across the enterprise (and investors) with clarity and decisiveness. I succeed because I have an unusually broad spectrum of experience and skills. My programming skills (VBA, Excel, Access) enable me to do more with less. I know advanced accounting, spreadsheets, and forecasting. I have done cold calling, face to face selling, business development, negotiations. I have worked with a wide range of very sophisticated attorneys and accountants to negotiate complex US and international transactions. I have located, hired, and fired personnel from technology, accounting, marketing, business development, and operations.
