Background

Summary

Companies that are innovative, dynamic, have A+ people and original technology are fascinating.

I'm an unrepentant technology evangelist -- it's instinctive. Whether it's a part of corporate strategy, business development partnerships, or pure marketing, I enjoy framing tech in a way that matches others' perspective. (For example, Drobo is not a micro-RAID array, it's "...like a big share drive that's never full and never fails")

Opportunities to not only think about strategic direction, but also (arguably equally or more importantly) convert strategy to tactical action and results motivate me. Measurable ROI matters.

I have a history of successfully taking on growth challenges, scaling companies and teams.

Away from work, I can be found lecturing at Stanford and elsewhere and shamelessly promoting the ideas (if not the writing) in my writing (See below, or Amazon, "Marketing Made Easy", by Entrepreneur Magazine Press / McGraw Hill and "42 Rules of Product Management", by Super Star Press).

I'm always happy to chat about great ideas with great people, and have served in an advisory capacity to ventures as appropriate.
