Person Details


I am a strategist and growth driver for technology companies in the US and internationally. In general management, business development, and strategic advisory roles, I have helped companies such as Dell, Yahoo!, and Experian Interactive generate millions of dollars of profitable new revenue in competitive marketplaces. My leadership has been tested during periods of crisis, significant change, rapid growth, and downsizing.

With a JD degree and early career experience with Venture Law Group, I excel at identifying opportunities, structuring deals, and overseeing fundraising and M&A activity specifically for high-tech companies in B2B, B2C, and D2C markets. As an operating executive, I have led belt-tightening initiatives and ensured efficient, consistent, and compliant business practices.
