I’ve had the good fortune to journey through roles in academia, policy-making, investment, and business leadership and oversight, with a common core focus: creating value by helping to strengthen leaders, boards, and decision-making.

I spent a dozen years at Harvard University and the Securities and Exchange Commission, advocating for more engaged boards and helping to lead the development of modern activist investing.  Subsequently, through Integrity Brands, I've spent more than 25 years as an investor, leader, board member, adviser, and coach at a spectrum of consumer-facing companies, from billion-dollar public ones to pre-revenue startups (and some nonprofits too).

​I'm presently also honored to be affiliated with the University of Arizona, assisting with efforts to promote entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thinking across the University.
