Hey there!

I'm a B2B ed-tech executive (currently Chief Strategy Officer at getAbstract, ex-O'Reilly Media, ex-Safari) 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). I'm also a very proud father of two wonderful kids!

My side projects include YieldTalk, with educational resources and detailed profiles of more than 100 investment crowdfunding and alternative investing platforms.
