WHY I'M HERE

The life of a founder is tough. A never ending to-do list. 80 hour weeks and all-nighters. It can be a lonely road. But it doesn't have to be like this.

I’ve been in your shoes. My wisdom comes from my hands on experience as an entrepreneur who has founded and built four companies from the ground up, including Redwood Portland, a successful consulting practice.

I've established my track record as a business operator by turning a chaotic startup into a well-oiled machine that achieved 7-figure profits and was recognized into the prestigious INC5000. My expertise comes from decades working for respected agencies and product companies big and small. My roots extend from global business hubs in London; to New York City, and San Francisco, where I've worked across diverse categories and business models.

My mission is to help you realize your vision for the future. I focus on improving the functional areas of marketing & sales, innovation, culture, fundraising and hiring. Because the best athletes need coaches, I train executives to develop their mindset and discipline with key skills and routines that drive business performance and goal achievement.

I can help you become the effective leader your business needs to thrive. I work remotely from my base in Portland, Oregon and enjoy collaborating with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

So if you are someone who is...  

  • A founder (co-founder or executive) of a revenue generating consumer product business, at seed (or series A or B) stage
  • You'd like support and wisdom to build, scale, fundraise or exit your business
  • You value trusted relationships with people who are committed to you for the long haul  
  • You can allocate time each week (or month) for mentoring and step-by-step guidance

ANSWERING YOUR BIG QUESTIONS

Transforming into an effective leader requires a new tool kit. I’ll help you with battle-tested frameworks and hands-on wisdom to confront reality and get fast answers for your urgent questions. 

01

Strategic Planning

What quarterly objectives will create the most impact for our big annual goal with the least amount of effort and resources? How can we collaborate as a team to set objectives and direct accountabilities?

02

Capital

How should we be thinking about raising capital? What deal is right for my needs and how can I find it?

03

Go To Market

Why am I not getting ROI from my marketing investment today? How should we approach adding high-value customers at scale?

04

Innovation

How can analytics tools and mobile technology be used to improve our customer experience? How can we create and validate new subscription products that feel organic for our brand?

05

Organization

Why is it important to delegate the functional roles of marketing & sales, creative and product that I'm leading today? How should I approach building a high-performance team around me?
