personal biography

I am “just this guy, you know”.

I’m a serial startup employee (addict?). With these companies, I’ve seen the good, bad, and frequently ugly. Like many of the practitioner turned marketing/management ilk, I have spent the majority of my career primarily rooted in technology pursuits.
Ultimately, I suppose I’m a believer that using technology to solve complex business problems is exciting.
