I’ve spent my professional lifetime building businesses and bringing innovative products and solutions to market in healthcare, government, retail, insurance, media / entertainment and other industries. I started my first business at 14, and another one at 19 before buying my first company at 22. Since then, I have been helping startups, mid-size and large businesses get to the next level .. playing a role in 9 different acquisitions along the way (5 on the sell side, 4 on the buy side) .. and 3 successful turnarounds.
As an experienced leader with an established track record of creating high performing teams and streamlining operations, I love the challenge of building something scalable and durable.
I write and speak about corporate entrepreneurship and innovation. My technology expertise is broad and includes specialty areas like cognitive computing, enterprise content management (unstructured data), records management, big data, advanced analytics, natural language processing and case/care management.
When not helping IBM transform healthcare, I mentor entrepreneurs through several programs. I am originally from Baltimore and now live in Northern Virginia. I can be found on the golf course, listening to music or enjoying photography when relaxing.
As a good IBM corporate citizen and Entrepreneur in Residence … the postings on this site are my own and don’t necessarily represent IBM’s positions, strategies or opinions.
