“Cricket is a game which the English, not being a spiritual people, have invented in order to give themselves some conception of Eternity.”

I work with people and companies that are hell-bent on improving the lives of the individual … and that keeps coming down to platforms, data and the trust in that data - often starting with who’s data is it - what can we do with it and why? I put the human back into the center of thinking, through translation …. marketing to sales, tech to business, business to customer, idea to value … society lives on islands of expertise that speak very different languages and too often meaning is lost in conversation between those islands. I interpret using the vocabulary of people to bring common understanding between the parties. Extensive, international experience. Proven track record in developing, marketing, selling and delivering real world business solutions to large and small enterprises alike. Effective in mature established companies and fast growth ‘start up’ environments. Keen eye on the future, feet firmly in the present. People and their needs first - all else follows. My nonprofit experience includes Identity Commons, Defy Ventures, UC Davis andThe University Of Hawaii System.
