About Craig

I’ve got 25 years of global experience as a successful founder, entrepreneur and hands-on senior business executive who has transformed early stage technology business opportunities into commercial successes. I have been part of 8 total startups = 2 as a founder/co-founder, 2 as first non-founder/business executive and 4 as senior executive either as a retained management consultant or full-time employee. I have a pretty broad-based background in management, business development, product management, marketing and engineering.

I’m looking for a technical partner with deep technical expertise who can not only formulate and articulate a long-term technical/product vision but still maintains great coding chops and expertise in project management. Someone who has lived and breathed in startups before, accepts the risks and can effectively deal with the requisite ambiguity, and embraces the daily challenges. Is willing to dive in and work hard and has a passion for finding that technology “needle in the haystack”.
