I'm an entrepreneur. I love the creative process of building products, teams, culture, and solving problems. I'm grateful to have been through the full lifecycle of starting, funding, scaling, and exiting a cloud-based tech company as both founder and CEO. And I'm actively involved in the entrepreneurial community, advisor to startups, and board member of several non-profits
