I’ve spent my professional lifetime building businesses and bringing innovative products and solutions to market in healthcare, government, retail, financial services/insurance, media/entertainment and other industries. I started my first business at 14, another 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) .. plus 3 noteworthy 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 often write and speak about corporate entrepreneurship and value driven innovation. My technology expertise is broad and includes specialty areas like artificial intelligence, enterprise content management (unstructured data), records management, big data, advanced analytics, natural language processing and case/care management.
A recent early retiree from IBM, I am now selectively consulting in areas of interest and expertise – helping organizations accelerate growth and value driven innovation. I also spend time mentoring entrepreneurs and veterans through several local programs.
I am originally from Baltimore and now reside close to both Baltimore and Washington, DC. I can be found on the golf course, listening to music or enjoying photography when relaxing.
