Tech startup executive, advisor, and career mentor
I've been mentoring professionals on career management in tech companies for over 10 years. I'm currently a Career Advisor for MBA students at Berkeley's Haas School of Business where I provide students & alumni with 1-1 advising on their career search in the technology & startup fields.
I'm actively involved in the Silicon Valley startup world, as a mentor at the 500 Startups Accelerator and advisor to several startups and Venture Capital funds. I was the first business hire at Drippler (Series-A funded startup) where I launched the US office and global sales organization. Previously, I launched the Alienware PC Gaming product line globally, pioneered viral marketing at Best Buy, co-founded WalkAbout Wireless, and designed & built cars at Ford.
