I have worked in Sales and Marketing my entire professional career. I graduated from Baylor University in 1994. I spent almost ten years in Broadcast Media: TV, Radio, and Internet.
It was here that I learned how to tell a good story, sell an idea and take care of customers. I had the privilege of being a part of my first software start-up in the late 90′s, TellSoft Technologies.
We had an innovative technology that enabled a telephone signal to be transmitted as streaming media over a computer. Companies like Tellsoft pioneered the WebEx or GoToMeeting solutions that we rely on today.
Like many early innovators living on venture capital funding, the party ended after a couple of years.
After a few years back in broadcast media, I found my way back to a software startup. I was the visionary leader behind PriceAdvantage fuel pricing software. I’ve served in every role within that company, except software development.
I chased cables, closed deals in Fortune 50 conference rooms, negotiated contracts between customers and attorneys, and crafted a product roadmap.
I am a graduate of Seth Godin’s Medicine Ball intensive workshop.
Seth Godin is one of the Top 50 Business Thinkers of our time. I was among a small group of world changers accepted to this application-based program from across the world.
I have run a consulting practice for the past three years working with organizations on their Sales and Marketing. Read more about how I united a scattered Tribe using Social Media.
I am launching a Podcast interviewing CEO’s - BrownBagCEO.
I am happily married for over 19 years and have three beautiful children from age 16 to 11.
