Entrepreneur, Mentor, Advisor with passion to products and technologies that make a real impact on our life, led by great people that have audacious plans and aspirations on a global scale.
I’ve been building software products that people use since 1989.
That’s long enough to make a lot of mistakes in many diverse fields – technological, managerial, organizational, inter-personal.
Hopefully I’ve also learned a lesson or two along the way.
It is my habit to always choose the path less traveled by, which is where I find the most inspiring and awesome people.
I grew up immersed in Sci-Fi movies, and I love meeting people who can actually carry these visions out with clear goals and true grit, people who intent on creating something magnificent!
I am passionate about learning, reading, writing, becoming a better communicator, thinking critically about ideas, applying my knowledge, and serving others.
I am grateful for loving parents, relatives, friends, and acquaintances, whose support and constructive criticism have shaped my ideals, values, desires, beliefs, and goals.
I love learning about markets, business models, competitive dynamics, and new technologies.
Scale up operator – early Skype director who led mobile growth and saw the business scale from 10m to 300m+ users worldwide.
