Summary

Lifelong technology professional and entrepreneur. I care about business as much as I care about technology... which is a lot.

I'm a "business guy" now, but I wrote my first BASIC program on punch cards at a time when it was neither cool nor lucrative to be a 15-year-old programmer. In the intervening 30+ years, I have written hundres of thousands of lines of code (although less is certainly more) and built over a hundred applications ranging from small to grand in languages from VB to PHP, .NET to JavaScript. Since 2000, have been focused on building web-based software product and service businesses.

Two of my core beliefs are:
1) Most good ideas are not also good businesses. It is job ONE of an entrepreneur to figure out if their good idea might also be a good business.

2) It takes a village to raise a startup. To that end, I am active in the startup community as an adivisor, mentor and organize. I host the monthly tech startup founders event called Startup Poker 2.0, a low-stakes poker tournament for startup founders, execs and investors. I also founded Geeks on a Trail to get entrepreneurs active and connected.

Specialties: Startup anatomist, business model aficionado, technology maven, software development best practitioner, software solution architect, product manager, technology leader.
