I have over three decades of experience building and leading technology teams and companies that create and leverage software to address risk and boost corporate performance. My expertise spans leading the convergence of business analytics, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, developing and executing impactful business strategies and taking a company from inception to IPO through a successful exit. At Atlanta-based Venture Capital firm, TechOperators, I am focused on helping forward-thinking tech entrepreneurs build legendary companies. In partnering with TechOperators, companies benefit from our team’s highly collaborative focus and deep experience operating software businesses. Everyone at Tech Operators has lived through the various stages of company growth.

Prior to my role at TechOperators, I was the founder and CEO of Oversight Systems and also held executive level positions at Internet Security Systems (ISS) and Symantec as well as Oracle, Red Brick Systems, GO, Air2Web and Fast-Talk. I have been a frequent speaker and presenter at a wide variety of conferences and co-authored the book, Robo-Auditing: Using Artificial Intelligence to Optimize Corporate Financial Processes. I am proud to have earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech.
