Background

Summary

I help companies grow, get financed, increase revenue and build value. I specialize in Strategic Business Development, Corporate Development, Revenue Generation, Digital Marketing Strategy, and Start-up Finance. My industry expertise is in Internet Advertising, New Media, Online Content and E-learning.

I've been an entrepreneur and built and sold my companies. I've also worked at senior levels in large blue-chip companies. I'm an Advisor to early stage companies and their CEO's. Yes, I've been around the block, but I enjoy the journey and the results.

Recently I became Venture Partner and Co-Founder of an early-stage venture capital fund, Canyon Creek Ventures - II. Along with being a Member of the Pasadena Angels, currently on the Board of Directors, I work to grow the Los Angeles technology start-up scene. I source and screen deals. I mentor entrepreneurs and perform due diligence with fellow investors. Frequently I step in to provide hands-on senior management leadership for invested companies.

Earlier in my career, I earned an MBA at INSEAD France, while living 13 years in Europe after college. I love to work with international teams and projects. I can get very different people to work great together and be productive.

Became addicted to road cycling, so now I'm pretty fit. It's the new golf, trust me.
