I run Noctivity, which dreams up crazy ideas and tries to make them real. We've done (sold in 2007), FareMonkey (sold 2005), Taper, SimplyHeadlines and (check it out). I'm also the co/founder of Wecora, which has been called "crack for interior designers" by, well, interior designers. Before that I created cPulse, sold to in '99 then Gartner (NYSE:IT) in 2000. In 2010, I was featured on Forbes as "Inefficiencies Worst Nightmare," which is pretty cool.

Right now I’m leading a team developing the world’s smallest, always-on tracking device for children and seniors (we’re talking months of battery life, not days). According to the FBI, in 2015 there were 460,699 NCIC entries for missing children, which just ain’t right. We’re very close to creating something that will make a serious dent in this situation and let kids be kids (without having to wear prison style ankle bracelets on their arms).

I believe in sir, maam, Mr and Mrs. I believe that just because you follow someone on Twitter doesn't mean you know them and should call them by their first name. I believe in holding the door, shaking hands and looking someone in the eye. And I've never done a business deal where both parties don't make out in the end. "Winning" in business should mean both people are happy, it makes life easier.
