I help entrepreneurs move their ideas from concept to business to large scale enterprises. I advise startups on business strategy, market positioning, executive team building, fundraising and go-to market planning. Teams I’ve advised and mentored have gone on to raise funds from Kleiner-Perkins, Mark Cuban, 500 Startups, the Draper Venture Network, Madrona, and many other seed and angel groups. More importantly, teams I’ve mentored have built successful businesses with significant bottom-line returns to investors. I am also a published author with additional books forthcoming in 2021.

Detailed tech biography:

IOT, AI, Security & Biometric Authentication

Vulcan PARC Adobe Intel Intel
I’ve served as General Manager and CEO for three software companies. My teams have delivered groundbreaking biometric authentication and identity services at scale for Fortune 500 companies. In earlier work, I helped to lead Intel’s developer product tools division as a business director and as a technical teams manager, with responsibility for several software development kits (SDKs) and public-facing marketing for these deployments. Products I helped launch at Intel included the OpenVINO computer vision toolkit and the Intel Context Sensing SDK, now deployed on hundreds of millions of IOT devices worldwide. I hold several graduate degrees, with executive education through the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. I’ve also studied ethics and post-humanism at the Graduate Union at U.C. Berkeley.
