About Me

For over 20 years I've enjoyed a career in technology, working and collaborating with talented founders, leaders and colleagues at some amazing companies. My experience has spanned enterprise software, hardware, consumer electronics, PaaS and SaaS intersecting with one or more of the following: digital advertising, mobile, connected devices, storage, messaging, video streaming, content creation, conversational AI and AI powered virtual assistants.

I've worked at startups that have failed (OneChannel and Solid Data) and others that have succeeded (Sling Media and API.ai). The successes allowed me to join Google and Dish Network, exposing me to new processes and industry best practices. My passion for working at startups, combined with the experience gained during my time with all of these companies, all at different stages of maturity and each focused on different deliverables is why I decided to start BLDG BLOCKS.

I help my clients create a solid sales and business development foundation or refine and improve their existing efforts by application of the experience and knowledge I've gained through my startup journey.
