Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

I’ve always been an inventor, a studied and persistent breaker of rules. Even when I was getting my PhD, I was chastised for not staying in my lane. I hung out with engineers instead of scientists, took courses on public speaking and business, and started a company. I made for a lousy academic as a result.

My calling turned out not to be science per se, but innovation. Science is an exacting process for understanding the world; innovation asks us to build something new and useful, and doesn’t care much it’s done. And in innovation, all of those bad habits of mine – dabbling in other fields, learning bits of information seemingly tangential to my task, asking why the world should care about my results – were features, not defects.

So I moved from science to technology, and from technology to business, always with designs on finding the shortest, simplest path to creating value. Some problems really do require that we dig deep into our scientific and technical knowledge. For others, the most elegant solution is to unlock the flow of money to a technology that already exists, or to foster dialog between humans whose complementary skills hold the answer. Whatever approach is needed to make the best, cheapest, and fastest solution is, I want to be there to make it happen.
