As an entrepreneur, I have started, run, and participated in the growth of many companies over the years. I have also been employed with or consulted for some very strong brands. I have seen companies and products both fail and
I am a Washington DC based photographer who has become used to carrying my camera everywhere. It has allowed me to share in my travels, as well as share the many features that make Washington DC unique. I don’t identify
In 2011 I began to offer Life Coaching as a practice.Though the story of how I started on the path to coaching is fairly new, the history is a little more complex and not as recent. In 2010 I started
I began my marketing career as a canvasser and telemarketer. My earlier experience in customer service helped me identify with the customer, using communication as opportunity to promote a product or brand, or to increase awareness around a company or
I was a geneticist once; for most of the past decade I’ve been an internet professional, leveraging technology to enhance user experiences through customer centric product strategy. With extensive start-up experience my passion for emerging technologies and new media have drawn the attention of large brands seeking innovative marketing and customer experiences. Here is more about me; you can follow me if you’re so inclined; or you can interact with me if you dare. You can even explore the artistic side of me, or read about my exploration of the world, my musings on my human experience, and yes, I’m on Google+.
If you’re looking to hire me for digital and start-up business strategy and analytics, I have a consultancy called RETHINK(bz).
From time to time I offer classes for small business owners in utilizing digital channels as a marketing and sales tool, as well as offer manager level professional coaching.
I am connected across the internet because I love information. Technology has made it so much easier to gather and share information, and people like me help bring usability to that technology. Right now it’s all about mobile (and tablet) compatibility; it was once about Web2.0 and social connectivity; I think very soon if not already, it’s about navigating the social and digital cloud.
People come to me for ideas. Applying principles and innovation to the areas of product management, internet marketing, and engagement optimization.
I find myself often dreaming up a new idea. I am passionate about life and as a result have many interests. It helps that I require little sleep – and I enjoy large quantities of sugar in its many wonderful forms – so I am also always on a question to better understand and create through new experiences.
I started out as a traveler when I was young. Though born as an American, I spent a lot of my younger years overseas. I travel often and travel light, and as I explore the world I find new ways of sharing it through images, video, and words.
I spent a week in the desert with Bedouins in Jordan, stayed on an island with 9 foot Monitor Lizards, eaten snakes and silk worms and fish eyes, swam with sharks, and enjoyed more beautiful beaches than most people. I’ve also spent more nights sleeping under an airport bench than most people.
As I travel I consult for different companies in the areas of management, marketing, process, user flow, design, customer service, and user experience. I also build websites from time to time, manage social marketing campaigns, write, speak, and occasionally sell catchy products.
Along the way I hope to make a difference in the lives of those I meet. I have high expectations for what life has to offer and I’m always out to seek how I might be able to push my limits, hoping to create extraordinary moments and experiences.

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”
The man below says: “yes you’re in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field.”
“You must work in Information Technology” says the balloonist.
“I do” replies the man. “How did you know?”
“Well” says the balloonist, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but it’s no use to anyone.”
The man below says “you must work in business.”
“I do” replies the balloonist, “but how did you know?”
“Well”, says the man, “you don’t know where you are, or where you’re going, but you expect me to be able to help. You’re in the same position you were before we met, but now it’s my fault.”

I still remember being asked “what reduces sound but lets air flow? We need to store the servers in the closet but it gets noisy. The problem is it also gets really hot.” These were the days when Freewebs (now
