a little about me

In 2005 I helped start-up a company called Celluride with my partner Kevin Helpern. I also started my own management consulting firm called mTelligent Systems. My consulting engagement includes business strategy, product launch & go-to-market strategy, and technology implementation. My clients included both large and small tech startups.



In 2004 while working as a product owner at Nextel, I launched wireless industry’s first location-based service (LBS) app that leveraged a number of innovative technologies in mobile phones including GPS, J2ME and IP. I also launched award-winning Wireless LBS Platform, which was wireless industry’s first LBS platform offering LBS API that led to ecosystem of 3rd-party application developers and companies in fleet management, field service, and transportation industries as well as a flurry of LBS apps in number of other industries.

my why

Being a mentor keeps me engaged with the startup community and allows me to help entrepreneurs who have similar passion. Additionally, it helps me to network with other business leaders and entrepreneurs in the community.
