I’ve created 6 companies as a sole owner or 50/50 partner. I also co-created an LLC to take a cloud-based ERP system to market or sell it to a Fortune 100 enterprise software manufacturer. I spent 2007-2010 on a steering committee creating a nonprofit to help the City of Burbank achieve zero waste. Love has been a big influence in the projects I take on – from 2007 to 2014 I helped my daughter launch 3 companies, the newest company has an eCommerce website.

After starting and running a network integrator for 10 years, I co-founded a digital marketing firm in 2012 that focuses on web and mobile apps . To fast-track my skills, I took a job at a high tech creative agency that is sophisticated enough to produce a horse race betting mobile application for a prestigious race track pushing millions of dollars through the app during the first season the app was launched.  Technology is changing so quickly, I had to align myself with an expert in the space of digital marketing, digital advertising, mobile applications databases and content management systems. In July of 2015 we agreed to end our alliance and I relinquished my options in the firm.

I am a futurist and am constantly looking for ways to improve existing products. As a fan and hobbyist, I love 3D printing technology, virtual reality (desktop and mobile ie Google #IAmCardboard), wearables (Muse brain sensing headband for meditation, Apple watch, Droid watch, FitBit, etc.), Internet of Things aka IoT, space travel, robotics, drones, artificial intelligence and am particularly fascinated by technologies like the Deka Arm that help people who have lost a limb.  I’m also keeping an eye on machine learning, quant applications, avatar technology and carbon nanotubes technology.
