In brief; my experience, passions, strengths;

Challenging, creative people and environments are what I seek. Spaces where one can continuously learn and grow as a human being, inspire and be inspired, and be surrounded by amazing talent. Love the saying; If you’re the smartest person in the room you’re in the wrong room. For the last 18 years’ I have been pushing boundaries in technology, entertainment and software, building products, teams, companies and spear-heading growth often through strategic partnerships and M&A's. I am especially keen on disruptive, immersive technologies such as VR, AR, MR, AI and motion capture, particularly where these technologies merge with entertainment.

My responsibilities at various times have included; making decisions on strategic priorities. Recognizing and prioritizing effective concepts and ideas across multiple products and projects. Ensuring consistent execution of product vision. Communicating vision, goals and progress to dev teams as well as internal and external stakeholders. Assessing the competitive market landscape for the latest emerging technologies and making decisions based on team input, predictive B.I based analysis and gut feeling. Currently consulting for tech companies and startups and actively involved in Business Intelligence and Big Data
