Since 1998 I have been heavily involved in the startup community. I have actively built, run, and owned all or a part of 8 companies. I have invested in 20 others and teach entrepreneurship, growth management, and SMB management as an adjunct professor.
In 1998 I started as a business planning intern for the first consulting company I would work for and help build. Since then, I have built and worked for a total of 4 firms specializing in the small and medium business arena where the key focus has been on startup, growth, scale, and realignment (reorganization).
