I provide Executive Advisor & Business Coach services through Revelry Labs. I am also heavily involved in Revelry Ventures and work with our startup studio partners. Internally, I help the team level up within the Revelry organization as we continue to scale.

I have been building online communities for 19 years, working as community architect, product designer, social marketer, customer developer, founder and startup advisor for companies including Primeloop500StartupsLaunchRockZappos,UserVoice, and Seesmic.

While I have a technical background, I prefer to speak in gardening and architecture metaphors. I am inspired by storytelling, psychology, evangelism, architectural theory, social economics, game mechanics, cultural anthropology, digital ethnography, compassion, and ants.

I was studying to become a missionary, but left that path because I grew tired of the business of religion. Now, I help entrepreneurs and businesses convert customers and employees into communities of evangelists.

Oh, and I fall in love with almost everyone I meet.
