Ashburn, VA

I'm a business executive with over 25 years experience in helping build companies, products and brands with lasting value. I do this by breaking down and understanding trends, technologies, businesses and markets, then developing and executing plans that achieve the right goal.

I've worked with and advised investors, startups and Fortune 100 firms on product and go-to-market strategies, including experience in full-cycle product management (dev, marketing, sales, support) and corporate development (funding, launch, partnerships, M&A).

As an entrepreneur, I've strived to create innovative social and collaborative business models. As a technologist, I've helped develop hardware and software systems, including content management systems, custom enterprise tools and social content & sharing apps.

Much of my work involves understanding how people interact with or interpret different aspects of technology, messaging and business/market behavior.

I presently co-produce and co-host the COIL, a weekly podcast on the nexus of business, technology and culture. I'm also an executive committee member of Intellifest, an annual conference for developers of applied artificial intelligence and rule-based decision systems.
