My Focus


I incubate ideas, launch products, optimize operations and drive revenue.

Product Development

I can manage an existing local or overseas Agile development team or set one up. I am most comfortable with SaaS products built with Java hosted on AWS.

Marketing & PR

Tactical and results-oriented, I focus on website redesign and content messaging, can launch and manage account-based management programs that increase pipeline and establish you as a thought leader in known publications.

Financials

Variable driven waterfall financial and proforma models in GAAP format that prove results, show a 5-year growth plan and enable you to monitor and control costs, increase margins.

Approach


In simple terms, I do 2 things: incubate your ideas or optimize your product and marketing organizations.
To achieve success I focus on 6 things.

Validate the Idea

Gather intel, build a financial model, draft market positioning.

Minimal Viable Product

Fail fast, be agile, use existing or my own R&D resources to build a fast prototype.

Collateral

Author exec summary, demo & pitch deck. Test messaging strategy with peers and potential investors.

Promote

Reach out to publications, agencies and VCs to increase awareness,

My Work


25 years of progressively challenging experience, gaining market share for well known leaders,
