Have a startup idea, looking to join a startup, or looking for employee(s)?

Equally happy leading and supporting, I get fired up by great ideas and love sharing my experience and enthusiasm.

Are you more business, design or tech?

I've devoted nearly a decade in total working on groundbreaking medical technologies, and have roughly the same amount of experience starting or operating businesses (technical and non).

What skills/experience in business or tech?

Boundary-free thinking. Broad knowledge base. Business plan development, business pitches, writing of all sorts. Financial analysis and communications. Contract review and negotiation. Building and managing teams and projects. Medical imaging, specifically ultrasound and image processing. Medical devices - have worked in R&D on percutaneously deployed cardiac therapies. Optics, acoustics. Technical challenges encountered in interventional cardiology. Long-term small business owner (non-technical). Team member for university spin off business plan development team. Pitched business plan to US VCs. Course: Idea to IPO in 14 Weeks. Industry-academia partnerships.

What topics are you interested &/or passionate about? What topics are on your radar?

Projects that have potential to significantly improve quality of life for many.


I love to build something from nothing, as an engineer and an entrepreneur. Wearing many hats makes me happy, as do brainstorming and testing out new ideas with a great team. Looking for my entrepreneurial soulmates to do something incredible.
