Innovate

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.

Continuous Innovation

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.

How Can I Help?

I can bring scalable and sustainable innovation to your organization across your entire business portfolio, delivering quick-win benefits, long-term growth, and disruptive strategy. Engage me as an entrepreneur-in-residence (EIR), IP and product strategist, head of innovation labs, or agile leader.
