Master of the fringe. The cunning folk of a new world.

    I believe in connecting people, companies, and communities to drive innovation and opportunity for others. You can find me operating at the crossroads of strategic partnerships, emerging technologies, and innovation management.

  • Experience


    I'm currently keeping busy by:

    • Connecting early stage startups with leading brands at Evol8tion
    • Helping businesses strategize and execute Corporate Social Responsibility programs as founder of August West Consulting


    Despite the name, we're not your typical consultants. Nor are we an agency. We are the masters of the fringe. The cunning folk of a new world, seeing non-linear connections languishing in the ether. Rejecting the tinderficiation of innovation, I'm like a modern shadchan.


    Previously, I advised corporations on how to maximize their engagement with pro bono work and skilled volunteerism to support nonprofits and schools whole a NPower. And before that, I survived corporate gigs NBCUniversal and MasterCard and cut my teeth at mobile technology startups MX Telecom and Velti.



    In a world marked by exponential change and evolution, success requires a combination of subject matter expertise and strategic guidance. I leverage both. Consistently.


    Huh? Look, friend - things are constantly changing. I meditate at the forefront of change. It's a good fit.


    In a today's climate, somebody needs to protect fragile ideas from corporate conservatism and myopic thinking. Might as well be me.


    I support these nonprofit organizations
