"Startups are a way of life for me and always will be."
I'm a builder.
I think I've told nearly everyone I've worked with that I'd instead plan, design, and build the Burj Khalifa than maintain it.
Building vision from the ground up through people, business, product, market, and high growth is the journey that keeps me humble.
Going from idea to exit takes courage, resolve, patience, persistence, timing, resourcefulness, and keen organization, and is what brings me the greatest satisfaction.
I've advised dozens of founders and continue to advise, mentor, and guide dozens more.
Between my startups and others I've partnered with, I've celebrated success and been humbled through failure, serving no less than to further fuel my endless passion for innovation and creativity.
Here are but a few of the startups and new projects I am currently involved in as either founder, CEO, or Board member in recent times with some truly incredible people. Others not listed here are either in complete stealth mode or too early to make the list will at some point in the coming year.
