MY PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY
I am a LEADING-EDGE TECHNOLOGIST and BUSINESS MODEL INNOVATOR working predominantly in the DTC/B2C/B2B2C/consumer product industry.
As an ENTREPRENEUR/CXO, I’ve sold 1, built 6 and crashed 2 companies.
As an INVESTOR, I work across all sectors, industries and asset classes.
MY WORK ACTIVITIES
MY PERSONAL LIFE
- PURSUITS: active with cycling, dogs, hiking, overlanding, photography/videography, shooting sports (archery and firearms), rock climbing/bouldering, skiing (uphill, downhill, XC, Biathlon) and weightlifting.
- FARMING. I live on a farm in Colorado with my wife and dogs where we grow using regenerative agriculture.
- HEALTH & WELLNESS. In my teens and twenties, I was a national level competitor in triathlons and biathlons (skiing and shooting) and a Cat 3 road bike racer. I struggled in the following decades with unknown chronic health issues that required me to give up most of my activities and largely “retire” from work in my 40’s, but through advancing science + my relentless research + trial and error, I was able to fix my health, unretire from work and add back all of the outdoor activities that I love to do. I used the Functional Medicine Framework to help me regain my health.
