Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

My life has been about innovation, invention and discovery, beginning with a near fatal curiosity of electricity and radio – there from my earliest childhood memories.  Somehow I survived and put most everything I disassembled back together again.  Growing up with Sputnik, the Space Race, sending humans to the Moon, the first Mars Mariner missions and Star Trek I was hooked on science, engineering and computers.

I should have been born with three feet since I’ve had one foot firmly in the technology world, one foot firmly in the business world and one foot firmly in the art world – forming an interdisciplinary view of the world providing quite the journey, and still generates wonder every day!
In the technology world I’ve been honored to work at the forefront of innovations – contributing to the first personal computer, computer networking, laser printing, microprocessors, software engineering, software defined radio, digital audio and video and many other technologies we now use everyday.  My startups have included invention of the first laptop computer, the first digital audio workstation and the first SDR-based cellular base station with its OpenBTS software.
In the business world I’ve led one of the largest corporate venture capital funds, worked for a major family office, served on many public and private Boards, as well as a Corporate Officer at some of America’s largest corporations – leading research labs, product development, product marketing and major business units.  I’ve always been fascinated by commerce and how ideas become inventions, innovations and industries.  
In the art world I’ve run a major urban symphony orchestra, an art biennial as well as exhibiting my own work in design, drawing, painting and photography including works at MoMA, Tate Modern and other museums, solo and group shows, and private collections.  Long ago a chance encounter with the Eames Design firm taught me that design, experience, and engineering were the same act of creation and best done concurrently.  I knew I wanted to be an architect at age seven, until I actually got to architecture school.  While music and the fine arts hold a special place for me it is photography that I find the most engaging – while I love digital I do miss the smell of developer, fixer and stop bath.  I’ve been lucky to have some extraordinary mentors!
It is an honor to help Xinova Think Beyond!
