Hey there

I’m an experienced executive who enjoys applying systemic thinking to strategic challenges, as well as designing product platforms and the organizations needed to build them. I’m also a sometimes-consultant, author, speaker, investor, conference organizer (most recently the PageBreak conference), and startup advisor (currently advising Holloway, Doriot, and PressBooks). Ex-O’Reilly Media, ex-Safari) I’m also a very proud father of two wonderful kids!

My current projects include strategy work with getAbstract and building the modern work library at Holloway.
