Together with my partner Larry in 2017, we successfully funded our Kickstarter for our party game Bad Actors.

Bad Actors is the inhibition-crushing party game where players take turn assuming characters and answering questions chosen by other players.

Director, Business Development

I am fortunate to work at AppFolio, a best-in-class SaaS provider where I’m honored to lead a talented group of 35+ Business Development Reps in two offices. A former Regional Sales Manager, BizDev Manager, and now Director of Business Development, I have honed a set of principles, lenses, and skills that supports world class business execution. I am best at strategic thinking and building repeatable processes that enable businesses to capture their ideal B2B customers.

At the end of the day it’s all about people – growing, supporting, and challenging them to live up to their excellence and holding ourselves accountable for when we don’t.

Public Speaking

 

Every fiber of my being lives for the moment on stage when I look out across an audience and see inspired and inquisitive looks. My two acclaimed speeches are “The Power of I Don’t Know” and “A Wounded Healing Man”.

 

Having won numerous Toastmasters competitions and spoken on a TedX stage and at several conferences, I speak about business, SaaS, technology, and personal development and would love to speak for your audience (for free).

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.
