Welcome!

I am a partner at Exile, an innovation studio, holding company and investment advisory group dedicated to building profitable market ecosystems that support people + planet

You can read more about what we're building here.

As a technologist and market strategist, I have played a critical role in the product + operational development of over 50 startups to date and have worked on groundbreaking innovation projects across 15 sectors over a 22-year period, including media, CPG, healthcare, energy, banking and philanthropy (a recipient of Forrester Groundswell, Slamdance and several other landmark awards). 

I am a committed experimenter of various applied economic disciplines (game theory, post-scarcity, microfinance, environmental, cryptoequity, commons), and a collaborator/advisor in Holonomics Education. I've been interviewed for several recent white papers and books, including “The Future of Small Business Growth” by SunTrust Bank, and “The Handbook of Digital Currency — Bitcoin, Innovation, Financial Instruments & Big Data” by Prof. David Lee Kuo Chuen, and will be featured in Holonomics co-founder Simon Robinson’s upcoming book, “Customer Experiences with Soul”. 

I am in service to creating a healthy, compassionate, regenerative economic system.

Have fun while you're here and always remain curious!
