About Dale

Open, insightful, passionate, collaborative and determined business executive with wide-ranging interests and several well-developed skill sets. I think like an owner because I have been one. More importantly, I act like an employee because they are the foundation of success in business. I like to operate (and I believe most organizational success is founded) at the nexus of people, process and technology.

I have been on the sidelines for over a year. Family issues. I am just finding my way back to the start-up community. I have a wide range of interests and a deep bag of skills and experiences. My formal training is finance but I have played every role in many organizations, including marketing, relationship development, technology, process management and leadership.

In a nutshell, I want to work with cool people on interesting projects that are ready to scale and still evaluating what that means for the organizational and capital structure. What is your passion?
