Startup Advisor

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’ve now served as General Manager and CEO for three software companies. My teams have delivered groundbreaking IOT, AI and biometric 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. My work has also been instrumental at Vulcan Labs, Adobe Systems and Microsoft.
