Like many of you, I've been chasing the #sidehustle for as long as I can remember.
In high school, I was reselling bulk candy to fellow students for $1 a bar. In college, recruiting friends to help wash a fleet of school buses while funding day-trading with student loans. After that, stints in web design, e-commerce, technical recruiting and property management - all with varying levels of success. Most recently, busy growing Wodan Labs as a digital consultancy with focus on law firm technology enablement. In my spare time, tinkering with a subscription service to enhance lawyer-to-lawyer collaboration.
While still seeking that big, early-retirement payday, equally proud that I've never lost more than a couple of thousand before a quick exit or a successful pivot. Along the journey, gained countless experience in a variety of industries from health care to distribution to real-estate, all while having a lot of fun learning new technologies and working with passionate people.
What I bring to the table - proven technical leadership. I've built and successfully managed product delivery teams consisting of 25-30 geographically-dispersed, highly-technical software engineers, integration specialists and quality assurance analysts - with a history of on-time/on-budget delivery. With over 15 years in Enterprise IT, I also bring extensive, real-world knowledge in navigating the complex hurdles of large corporate customers (B2B) and can advise on best approach to frame meaningful value proposition.
What I'm looking for - opportunities to partner in a technical advisor capacity while seeking an ideal co-founder arrangement. Available up to 20 hours per week - nights and weekends. Specifically interested in LegalTech, FinTech & HealthTech opportunities.

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. - Steve Jobs
