We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.
My mission is to help entrepreneurs with a passion for people and planet build lean, profitable businesses that perform with excellence.
Entrepreneurs across the globe are creating a new breed of company; they are re-defining what it means to be a success in business. This "new breed" are putting the resources of their business to work for the common good to serve society; they are passionate about sustainability, the needs of their community, thoughtful of their employees, and may even be involved in a major impact project in a far away place.
I am committed to being of service to others and making a positive impact in my church, my neighborhood and around the globe. I enjoy time with family, cooking great food, playing squash, times of solitude with a fly rod on still water and swimming in the salt!
