Welcome to my blog.  I have a lot to talk about and a lot to share.  I have “zigged and zagged” throughout my carrer, spending time as an individual contributor and or manager/executive over just about every company function there is.  I’ve worked for very large companies as well as startups.  These companies spanned the spectrum of hardware, traditional software, SaaS and even semiconductors.  I’ve also traveled the world on business, from China to Brazil, from Israel to Ireland, from Singapore to Mexico, and almost everywhere in between.  I truly hope you enjoy the content on this site and welcome your feedback and commentary.
