Business Bio 

When I was eight years old, I visited Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia plantation, and decided then and there that I was going to be an engineer. I was awestruck by the innovations Jefferson had incorporated into his beautiful home, from the self-opening French doors, the polygraph he used to make copies of his many letters, to the wine bottle dumbwaiter in the fireplace millwork, and above all, the 7-day Great Hall Clock which had cannonball weights descending through the floor to the basement!

I followed my dream and earned a Civil Engineering degree at Virginia Tech, then headed to industry to build, create and problem-solve. During my 38 plus years at DuPont I gained a wealth of executive experience in manufacturing, marketing, international business development, R & D, IP and Product Development. As a young engineer, a highlight of my career was the invention and commercialization of a new geotextile product. The pinnacle of my DuPont years came as Global Managing Director for Intellectual Assets and Licensing. To create value for DuPont technology, intellectual property and knowledge, I grew the business over 5-fold to hundreds of millions in net revenues, with an average of over 110 licensing deals per year. 

At some point, while reading yet another Thomas Jefferson biography, I realized that not all of his innovations were his own inventions. Rather, Jefferson had acquired ideas from others, combining them with his own. In effect, he was licensing knowledge!  Another prophetic gift to me.

At Xinova I am expanding the journey, by creating or finding innovation solutions for our clients, whether this involves a new invention, an innovative business model or a nascent spin-out entity. Ultimately, I am fueling my passion for innovation.
