    Making sense of magic

    In league with the fantastic

  • I believe in connecting people, companies, and communities

    to drive innovation and opportunity for others.

     

    Also, magic. After all, technology is the process of replicating the condition of magic. That's the paradigm.

     

    I meditate at the crossroads of strategic partnerships,

    digital anthropology, and emerging technologies.

     

  • Experience

    I currently match early stage startups with leading brands at Evol8tion. Are we consultants? An agency? Neither. 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, we are the shadchan.

     

    I survived corporate gigs NBCUniversal and MasterCard and cut my teeth at mobile technology startups MX Telecom and Velti.

     

    I'm rugged, but classy.

    Vision

    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.
