I fix businesses, particularly those with a need for big personality. My early career centered on conceptual skills in architecture. From there I was pulled to foodservice, corporate & product branding, theme parks, entertainment production and hospitality/gaming industries. At one point, Autodesk, the publisher of AutoCAD, engaged me to help create Impressions, software that turns technical computer drawings into hand-hewn presentation exhibits. I’m also the author of BizGym.com, a business growth app, co-founded SaaS Ventures, an app development firm, and own StoryManager, Inc. a business development firm. My best title ever is “Chief Lemon Head” at Lemonade Alley, the kid-biz challenge produced by non-profit 501C3 BizGym Foundation which I founded and serve as Chairman. Recent recognitions include Entrepreneur of the Year (Hawai’i BBB 2013) and Charity of the Year (Hawai’i BBB 2014). Education includes a BA in Design (UCLA) and a JD in Law (UC Berkeley).See Full Bio »
