I help companies unlock growth through research, strategic planning, and marketing services.



Who I am

I’m an entrepreneur and advisor with more than 20 years experience in leadership, technology, and strategic planning.

What I do

I help small and mid-sized businesses develop and execute strategies that accelerate profitable growth.

What I’ve done

Since 1995, I have launched technology startups and grown revenue for companies like Linode, Kroll (NYSE: MMC), OSA, HealthStream (NASDAQ: HSTM), and SmithReed Capital.

I founded and raised equity for two early e-commerce startups, GearPro and TshirtNow, and have since implemented growth strategies for enterprises, valued between $1MM and $500MM, in cloud computing, risk management, e-learning, healthcare, and financial services.

For Linode, I built the company's sales, business development, marketing, and customer success teams and helped grow revenue from $18 million to $100 million in 9 years. 

While at Kroll, I oversaw key client relationships, including AT&T, Monster WorldWide, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Major League Baseball, Express Scripts, and Google

At HealthStream, I led the development of software solutions in partnership with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) and Adobe that were adopted by Sutter Health, Tenet Healthcare, The Cleveland Clinic, and Christus Health among others.
