I invent stuff. I empower others to create with impact.
Innovation is a Discipline
I practice and teach the discipline of innovation. I work with startups, non-profits, large enterprises, and various government agencies on using a culture of innovation to drive impact. My work includes a broad range of industries from: technology, commerce, infrastructure, healthcare, education, and beyond.
I build scalable and sustainable innovation frameworks and ecosystems. I help organizations develop an innovation strategy that centers around value creation across their entire portfolio. In my former role as Director of Innovation Programs at eBay, I designed, built, and grew a thriving innovation marketplace that either significantly contributed to, or was directly responsible for, almost every major technology innovation release from the company.
I have over 40 patents (12+ awarded, 30+ currently in USPTO review) across multiple disciplines and subject matter areas. These include: software, hardware, human computer interaction, block chain, genetics, and other subjects. I personally authored almost 2% of all of eBay’s patents, and sat on the Intellectual Property Steering Committee (IPSC) that was responsible for reviewing the entire eBay IP portfolio.
