In a world of change and uncertainty, I help people double their entrepreneurial courage -- even if they're in a sea of self doubt.

My efforts to coach entrepreneurs include creating Venture Superfly, a website that helps entrepreneurs create a higher-performing startup.

I am an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the University of Minnesota, where I mentor student entrepreneurs; I am also a Tech Partner with Matchstick Ventures, an early-stage tech venture capital fund.  Prior to this, I was a CEO-in-Residence at the university’s Venture Center and a founder and/or owner in three startups.

My core skills include business planning, marketing, product development, sourcing, and launching consumer products.  

I’ve participated in innovation projects with Best Buy, Hershey’s, Procter & Gamble, LensCrafters, S.C. Johnson, Chase Bank, Philip Morris International, Outback Steakhouse and other companies.
