No company affiliations.
My roots are in entrepreneurship, having spent nearly a decade starting and growing technology companies, and activating projects and organizations that regenerate healthy ecosystems and socially just and joyful environments. After immersing myself in all aspects of starting and growing companies, I focused my attention on learning about and teaching eco-systemic design. Now I am working at the intersection of permaculture and economy. I have raised millions of dollars to capitalize business operations, led teams, and can speak well to the benefits and pitfalls of raising capital and the many paths of growing a business. I loves spreadsheets,to dig into operating models and figs.
