Welcome!

I’m launching this site to tell my story and to use the blog to create a space for entrepreneurs to dig into the path. I have had a ton of experiences, I have seen many sides of the business world, and I hope that my experiences can help you. At a minimum I hope to create a space where people can understand me.

I have been an entrepreneur all of my career. I launched a venture funded company in 2003, we raised 4 rounds of financing, launched 5 products to market and did more pivots than I care to think about. I helped a friend successfully sell their company, and now I am embarking on buying a company as part of my new gig, Broadtree Partners.
