My Technology Bio includes strategic roles in government policy, business development, and sales management.  My employers are market leaders like IBM, Brio, TopTier/SAP, Borland, Soonr, MapInfo and Carma. Because I started 4 businesses before the age of 15 years, I was driven to graduate early from high-school and pay my way through college working at IBM. My studies included Drama and Computer Science at the University of Texas, plus Marketing at Stanford.

I smile anytime a camera is near and I’ve never met anyone I didn’t know or like.

I have been in front of a camera since the age of 8 years old, including musicals and national commercials such as; Nerf, Play-Doh and 7-Eleven.  I have been spokesperson for 10 hot-rod technology startups; 6 took the first exit of acquisition, and another 2 took the express lanes to IPO.  As a result, I presented to thousands of C-Level executives, media reporters, regulators, industry panels, and members of congress.
