My experience and background is in building fully integrated platforms encompassing software, hardware and services. I have done this work in many roles culminating as a Chief Technology Officer for two companies. I have a talent for building new teams from scratch, leading technology strategy, and focusing on the customer first and as a focusing mechanism for strategy. I love the process of incubating an idea, putting a plan together to execute on the idea, and watching it flourish as it comes to market. I have had several opportunities in my career to follow and lead this life cycle. I strongly believe in diversity in teams, enabling diversity in thinking. I believe constraints lead to better outcomes, and I am a strong believer that good ideas come from good collaboration, not individual thought. Build only what differentiates you, buy or borrow the rest.
In my off time I love to ride motorcycles, go offroading in my Polaris RZR (a side-by-side) and enjoy time with my friends and family. My favorite quote, almost any line from “Princess Bride”, or “Do Epic Things” (PG Version).
