My expertise is the intersection of public and private sector pain points.

There is a lot of opportunity to create groundbreaking and transformational companies in this space. 

People come to me to learn about enterprise, cybersecurity, and dual-use technology.

People also ask about my dog Madison, who looks like a puppy (she’s 8). 😊
