Multidisciplinary business owner committed to lifelong learning focused on the long term. Effective at building simple processes and empowering team members via delegation and autonomy.

In 2017 I acquired a decade-old software services business and transformed it into a leading engineering culture focused on measurable results with repeatable processes. Growth required installation and training of professional project management, accounting, hr, and sales teams. I shifted the business from outbound sales to inbound opportunities and hired over 100 engineers in under two years.

Over my career, I have facilitated over $10 Billion in transactions including mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, divestitures, and advisory. I am passionate about business acquisition and investment and the opportunities that can be created through the movement of dollar and human capital. I believe commerce is the ultimate tool to improve the material wellbeing of the human condition. When the right people and processes coalesce, tremendous value can be created.

I invest in private companies and help take them to the next level. Always working on the future.
