When I reached twenty eight, I called myself an entrepreneur. And my next milestone, at thirty five, is to write advisory essays to help others dream up adventures of their own. You only live once; what will you have left undone in your final moment?

BASIS history

In my previous life, I was a career engineer. I've worked at Microsoft, Google and various Silicon Valley startups, helping them increase value, become more efficient, avoid failure, and grow rapidly.

After my corporate life, I started on a quest to make more strategic initiatives and innovations avoid mistakes, seize on opportunities, reach growth quickly and become valuable.

In my current life, I work with CEOs to scale and grow products and product-teams at market-validated new ventures.
