Business Bio   LinkedIn Profile 
 In 7th grade, I encountered a problem that needed solving My friends’ skateboards were being stolen. In response, I invented a lock for skateboards. I sketched the plans and with help from my dad, we built a prototype in our garage. After some testing, we it took to a local skate shop to get feedback and made refinements. I loved the feeling of bringing to life something that I had just imagined in my mind. Ever since, I had the bug to be a creator and entrepreneur. At work, I still love the feeling of coming up with something in the morning and seeing it come together by the end of the day. That has inspired me to help launch and work with several startups some of which grew to be big and others that didn’t. Success or fail, the process of innovation excites me and drives me forward.
As a result, I identify with the excitement in the creation stories of the Xinova innovators and the impact their ideas have on our clients’ business. In those stories, I’ve seen that invention can happen in any part of an organization, even marketing. In that spirit, we strive to rapidly explore, ideate, test and iterate with the goal of shipping quickly so we can learn and improve. My favorite part of marketing is working with entrepreneurs to help build their brand and tell their story.
I’ve lived mostly on the west coast in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. I currently reside in sunny Seattle with my wife and two children and my free time is spent visiting national parks, mountain biking, skiing and mastering the art of iPhone photography.
