“The most satisfying environment for top-talent, is working with other top-talent.” – Send me a note to join the team.
I’m always on the hunt for incredible talent. Are you the go-to person at work? The star talent that loves what they do and has a passion for big challenges and working with other star-performers? If so, find out how to work on my team, you’ll love it.
When I can, I enjoy speaking at events and giving back to the community. Whether it is one on one with CEOs, founders or students or at larger group events. Reach out and if your event fits with my interests and schedule, I might be able to help.
I’m passionate about helping established start-ups and companies get to the next level of their growth. If your company requires advice in areas such as growth, leadership, or product market fit, I might be able to contribute. These days I don’t have much spare time to advise but when I do I focus on companies that already have reached product market fit and are addressing a large market.
I’m open to all kinds of opportunities to get involved in new things that are interesting, challenging and fun. Want to chat? Drop me a line.
