Menlo Park, California, United States
I love helping people and companies find direction on marketing, business strategy, and innovation related challenges. I've also enjoyed mentoring people from all over the world of all skill levels about careers on entrepreneurship, marketing, and about formulating their business strategy in complex situations.
I help companies solve challenging problems by using structured analytics and optimization. Marketing, customer engagement, and supply chains form the majority of my expertise. I've been fortunate enough to contribute to multiple innovation projects both as an entrepreneur and at large corporations. Having been part of multiple innovation teams at larger companies, I've become a big believer in the results that customer-centricity and lean startup approach can bring, whether you are innovating at a startup or at a large corporation.
