Born in Portland Oregon and raised in Albuquerque New Mexico, I have lived in the DFW metroplex since 2000. Growing up in Albuquerque was a unique experience, both in terms of education and experience. Since moving to DFW in 2000, I have worked with a number of startups, with some having successful exits and others maintaining private profitability. I worked within Omnicom for nearly 17 years (at TribalDDB, Rapp Collins and Javelin) working with clients like the US Air Force, Pepsi, AT&T, Hyatt, and ING.
Ultimately I left Omnicom in the spring of 2017 as CTO of Javelin to focus on Angel Investing and Advising. During this time I also provided consulting to startups and worked in various marketing and technology roles.
I currently engage with startups across multiple verticals to support scaling technology, integrating marketing technology, introductions, funding, and any other areas of expertise I can provide. I live with my family in Grapevine TX, and enjoy traveling and finding new and exciting companies to support and grow.
