My Background

I develop, launch and grow consumer product companies, which can also be referred to as business-to-consumer (B2C) and/or business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) companies.

My background includes one company from startup to $100 million, another to $50 million, a third to $25 million and a fourth that is niche-focused doing 6-figures. Previous to these companies, I sold one technology company and crashed two other startups.  I continue to work on consumer product startups,  either on my own, with partners, or helping others as an advisor or consultant or hired as an employee. I also founded and run a startup incubator for consumer product companies.

I live on a farm in Colorado with my wife and dogs.
