I love to start stuff.
I'm a serial entrepreneur and enjoy working with other entrepreneurs and inventors to turn viable ideas into finished, marketable products.
My passion lies in giving the product a voice to tell the customer what it is, what it does, and all the wonderful ways it solves a problem and makes their lives better.
Over the past 25 years, I have been fortunate to be part of starting, running, and selling several companies' as well as creating and working with ongoing successful brands and products.
I now work with my talented business partner Doug Homer to help organize and formulate product ideas, from initial concept to polished, sellable product. We collaborate with partners in China, the UK, the US, and Canada. It is our goal to continue to advance global design and ideation.
Areas of Focus:
• Ideation and product concept development
• Product positioning and messaging
• Product sourcing, costing and pricing
• Advertising concept and execution- Social, PPC as well as
• Launching products via crowdfunding platforms; Kickstarter Indiegogo
• Selling concept to buyers via product presentation
• Project management and launches (digital and physical)

Lots of fun stuff here!
