My experiences over the past 20+ years have been extremely wide and varied, as you might have read. To say my pathway into entrepreneurship and venture capital has been unconventional is an understatement. However, I'm a true believer that life can bring you endless surprises if you are able to fully embrace each day, each interaction, each breath, as an opportunity that will never present itself again. Instead of asking yourself, what can this moment or experience do for me, ask yourself: What will I do with this moment?

Below you'll find a portfolio of my work history, ventures I have founded, organizations with which I am affiliated, recent investments, advisories & mentorships, and old projects I've retired.
