    👉🚀Recent Successes: Congratulations to three of my clients for closing their capital rounds. Alleo.ai and Equility both closed their pre-seed rounds and completed TechStars. Continuum.ai oversubscribed their seed round in 90 days! With 25 years in the startup ecosystem as both an advisor and a founder (concept to exit), I've mastered the art of shaping compelling investor pitch decks, business plans, and deal memos that get results. I have a deep understanding of the hurdles and challenges that founders face when trying to launch and raise capital. My commitment? To arm entrepreneurs with the tools and insights needed to see around corners, navigate the inevitable obstacles, and take their products to market. I have extensive experience in fundraising, having raised capital across the spectrum from $500k pre-seed to $60M in Series B venture capital. I have also worked on a wide range of industries and models, including B2B SaaS, AI and machine learning, proptech, salestech, edtech, crypto, data, e-commerce, social, wireless EV, and media. This broad experience allows me to bring a unique perspective and customized approach to each project. My skills have been honed through my experience as the founder of a successful SaaS startup, which I took from concept to launch to scale to exit. As the advising Chief Strategy Officer for an IoT software and hardware company, I led equity funding and investor relations, working on deal memos, investor assets, and pitch decks. In addition to my practical experience, I have a strong network in the investor community, through my affiliations with angels, micro-VCs, rolling funds, and VC accelerators such as TechStars, Boomtown, MassChallenge, and Mergelane. I have been recognized for my work, with coverage in media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal and mentions in several books, including the best-seller The Customer Funded Business by Dr. John Mullins and Business Results Revolution by Sandy Richardson. I have a Top Talent rating with Upwork with dozens of recent 5-Star reviews and many written testimonials that reflect my commitment, experience, and ability to get results. IMPORTANT STATEMENT REGARDING AI. *** As we dive headfirst into a future powered by artificial intelligence, I'm here to help founders ride the wave of this game-changing innovation. As an experienced strategist and advisor, I'm excited to assist entrepreneurs in navigating the complex AI landscape, tapping into the massive opportunities it presents, while at the same time understanding the potential disruption and implications that are possible. I'm a firm believer that AI isn't just another hype-cycle; it's a pivotal moment in human history, with AI's utility already making a tangible impact on our everyday lives. Leaning on my extensive AI expertise, I'm eager to partner with founders to help them fully understand this rapidly evolving field, enabling them to iterate and adapt their business models to thrive in the midst of AI-driven disruption and expansion. Let's join forces and shape the future of business, leveraging the incredible potential of artificial intelligence. ***

    I’m a software manager and decommissioned developer who likes to have fun while we “ship it.” Small team and start-up transformation where I focus. ✅ Application and Project delivery specialist. ✅ Project Management delivering procedures, accountability, and transparency. ✅ Product Ownership to keep the team, mission, and delivered product aligned. ✅ Agile Transformation (Scrum Master). ✅ Fractional CTO services to mentor and lead engineering and software development. Success comes by way of my software-first and business-friendly leadership. Consistent delivery and honesty allow start-ups and agency projects (apps, cloud, technical demands) to ship. From operating in stealth early stages to pre-acquisition (prototype to final version), all products improve with solid leadership and hard work. Where the rubber hits the road is generally in engineering departments. I have lived the software life for decades and will bring additional value to your project and team. Hardened as CTO, Sr Dev, and Software Architect while working in Manhattan’s “Silicon Alley,” I help clients and teams find greatness. Software is easy to take for granted, and for all the money invested, let’s get it right! Pull me in to deliver context to and from development and business teams. Superpowers include: 🔥 Communicating effectively with people at all levels of an organization. 🌊 Lead, mentor, and inspire teams (even remotely) 🎯 Keeping mission focus and discipline across projects 🔫 Security consciousness and data-sensitive mission-critical work 🚀 Broad experience across many languages, stacks, and frameworks 💸 Stakeholder engagement and management ⚰️ Future-proofing (just kidding)
