I am an eight-time entrepreneur with successful exits to Apple, IBM and Intel (Wind River).
My focus is on mobile apps, social media and web services, with a definite platform tilt.
My core forte is the marketing function, including product management; product marketing; marcomm (plus social media); and business development.
That stated, when you are an entrepreneur, you simply learn to solve problems, so I am comfortable in all phases of being an operator.
I may not always be right, but I am rarely confused, and you never will find me being passive or willfully ignorant when it comes to taking necessary action.
My operating approach is best thought of as co-creation.
When you are looking for a ‘product nut,’ someone who is a hands-on, technical problem solver with domain experience across online video, community, social media, post-pc devices (especially, iOS) and SaaS, that’s me.
The projects that I am involved in include:
- Unicorn Labs, a producer of interactive ebooks and elearning systems for iPhones and iPads.
- Insider Engine, a service that algorithmically tracks insider buying activity to generate stock recommendations.
- Verdi Capital, an angel investment and strategic advisory firm (with Gregory Malin of Troon Pacific).
On the human front, I have a great wife and two really awesome sons. I have maintained a Bikram Yoga practice for 15 years, and am a devotee of Tibetan Buddhism.
