Over the last two decades I have devoted myself to entrepreneurship, mentorship, startups, technology, and effective government policy. I work at the New Hampshire Tech Alliance as Senior Director of Startup Initiatives. Essentially I am working with startup founders – focused on helping them build products/solutions that customers love and connecting them to people who can also provide assistance.
As a techie at heart but also an educator, I frequently speak at various startup, university, and tech events. I excel at engaging with audiences of all skill levels to introduce new technical and innovation concepts. Current tech focus: Blockchain (currency, non-fungibles, smart contracts) / AR / VR / Autonomous Vehicles.
Previously I have been a CTO & software developer, co-founding a company that created commercial content management software used by Fortune 500 companies, universities, banks, municipalities, and small businesses.
Beyond my day job I am President of my kids’ local elementary school Parent Teacher Organization, a former City Councilor for the beautiful City of Portsmouth, a previous member of the Portsmouth Economic Development Commission, Recreation Board, Joint Budget Committee, and have been a board member for a number of area non-profits.
Mostly though, I just dream about my garden.
