Thoughts, Ideas & Other Ramblings
Hello, and welcome to my website. I started this site a long long time ago with a goal of sharing what I've learned over the years and that's still my goal.
I mostly write about technology, leadership, and business since that's been my livelyhood and my biggest focus for the past twenty years. I also write about my other interests including music, traveling, and other random topics.

Currently I'm available for business coaching, product strategy, speaking, mentoring, and angel investing. Get in touch.
