I am an entrepreneur and investor who has co-founded several companies and invested in a number of others. I currently operate out of Firehouse Capital, a closely held investment company that makes entrepreneurial investments in early stage technology companies, real estate, and other interesting opportunities. Over the past twenty years, I co-founded several companies including Yandex, InfiNet Wireless, and CompTek (all in Russia) as well as Wilson|Alan, the Global Content Alliance, and SchoolPulse. I am an investor and/or board member in several other high growth companies, including ProcessUnity, Solid Carbon Products, and LoveFilm. I have been self-employed all but seven years of my career -- those years spent at Forrester Research and Mercer Management Consulting.
