A trusted communicator, he has testified twice in front of Texas House of Representative Select Committees on the need to increase public university research funding, the economic value of commercializing Texas university research, and the importance of state-funded high-tech entrepreneurial investment for the continued growth and health of the Texas economy. He has been interviewed by local and national media, has written on entrepreneurship for groups including CES/Consumer Technology Association, and is a frequent speaker on process improvement, innovation, entrepreneurship, and teambuilding.
He has been an active volunteer in the DFW technology community, as a Tri-Chair of the Innovation Committee with the Tech Titans (formerly Metroplex Technology Business Council), and a longtime volunteer and course guest speaker at the University of Texas at Dallas Jindal School of Management.
