I'm deeply passionate about what is possible when creative problem solving is combined with a growth mindset, and I'm thrilled to have the privilege to partner with entrepreneurs to make that a regular part of their lives, and have a consequential influence on their trajectories as a result.
As a multiple-time founder, investor, former tech executive, and chief of staff, I've spent my (non-linear) career in the trenches with some of our time's most ambitious leaders and operators, and my consigliere practice is the most potent application of my accumulated knowledge and know-how. My own experiences (both the successes and failures) as an entrepreneurs mean that my partnership comes from a place of deep experience, with the accumulated data and rolodex at the ready.
Whether it's helping entrepreneurs prepare for their biggest moments, like an IPO, product launch, or Nobel Prize acceptance speech, or supporting them through the quiet dramas in between, like fundraising, personnel transitions, and business model pivots, I partner with entrepreneurs to help them get the job done well and harness every opportunity for growth.
I specialize in early stage entrepreneurs working to be the best version of themselves while growing their businesses because of, and despite, the pressures they face on a daily basis.
I am a humanist, an optimist, and a truth teller. I spend most of my time in the Hudson Valley with my extraordinary wife and adventurous dog. For proper nouns, my bio is available here
