In the past two decades, I founded several technology companies, helped over 20 startups go to market, started 2 consulting agencies, and created products for some of the world’s biggest brands like Disney, BMW, and Visa. On my journey I filed patents for algorithmic publishing, had one of my startups featured by Apple as “New & Noteworthy,” built real-time audience engagement apps for American Idol and prime time TV in North America, owned a retail clothing brand, led e-commerce design at Rogers - Canada’s largest telecom, and helped with digital transformation of large financial institutions like TD, RBC, and Manulife.
