Welcome to this website. It's here to satisfy requests for presentation bio's and related profile and career backgrounder requests. It's also here to solicit friends, prior colleagues and friends I haven't yet met who would like to brainstorm really creative business or philanthropic ideas. My business focus is software technology, and particularly cloud business software for global middle market and enterprise organizations. My philanthropic passion is marine conservation. Got an idea?
Lets discuss.
