Startup Storyteller in Honolulu, HI

I’ve helped to start, build, and sell companies (including several on the Inc. 500 list). I’ve worn many hats. But my first love is storytelling.

This means I love helping entrepreneurs distill new or difficult concepts into readily accessible verbal and visual stories that others can’t say no to.

I’ve been a founder and a CEO, but what that means is I've also run product, branding, marketing, operations, and legal* departments. Not to mention "business cheerleading" squads. I speak finance and tech, though my coding days are largely behind me. My experience ranges from product concepting to law*. From copywriting to business and logistics. And from visual design to engineering.

What I’ve learned from all this: to win the day, the only thing you need to do—frankly the only thing that matters—is to Build FOMO.

A "fear of missing out".
