I create value at that point where customer needs meet technological possibility. Six times in my career I have led or participated in growing businesses across the $100 million mark in revenue I have always been a change agent and love to help teams meet their full potential.

I have directed product, marketing, design, engineering, and operations teams across many sectors of the Internet ecosystem including security, utility, health and fitness, ISP, web hosting, portal, IM, VOIP, music, ticketing, publishing and social networking industries. I love identifying customer needs and tech trends and turning them into successful products and businesses. I also enjoy building the future with partners and have negotiated and managed BD deals and acquisitions worth 100's of millions of dollars.
I have been the GM for five different businesses, with P&Ls between 5 million and 125 million. I built great teams by developing internal resources and attracting new employees to tackle exciting challenges.
I am a trusted board member, advisor, and investor to new and growing companies. I enjoy employing my network and sharing my experience with motivated individuals who are trying to create the change they want in the world.
I am also a family man and twice took time off to circle the world with my family. One of my proudest moments was being on the Oprah show with my late-wife and four kids to discuss how we all make the most out of this life.
