A transplant from the East Coast, I moved to the Silicon Valley when Netscape and flip phones were all the rage. I have over 30 years of professional experience in marketing, corporate finance, management, strategic planning, mergers & acquisitions, venture development, data network design, and systems design & development in several industries, including telecommunications, information technology, entertainment, computer manufacturing, and financial services. Companies that I have worked with ranged from startups to Fortune 100 companies in the U.S. and globally, including AT&T Bell Labs, MCI, and IBM. I have worked in various capacities as a CEO & CFO in several startups, and as a partner in international consulting firms, including Booz Allen, Gemini, McKenna, and TechSynergy, with a total M&A deal size of over $6 Billion.

I have been teaching at De Anza College since 2011. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and hiking with my three dogs. I hold a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I hope to see you in my classes. If you have any question about the classes I teach, please do not hesitate to contact me.
