I love creating companies and leveraging them as a force for good. Over the last 10 years I have founded and built over a dozen technology companies, and I have had nine company exits. I’ve been honored be featured as a top entrepreneur in Inc Magazine and be an INC 500 Company Founder. I have served as Co-Board Chair with John Mackey (Founder & CEO, Whole Foods Market) to bring together conscious business and thought leaders together in a non-profit to solve some of the most serious problems facing the planet today. I am now working as the as the CEO & Producer of RiseUP: The Movie and Movement that features business and social change agents such John Mackey and others including the Dalai Lama, Blake Mycoskie (Founder, TOMS Shoes), Tony Hsieh (Founder, Zappos), Luke Nosek, (Co-Founder, PayPal), Casey Sheehan (former President/CEO, Patagonia), Moby (Grammy Artist), Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul series) among many others. I endured the pain and made it through to receive a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology and a Doctoral Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Organizational & Financial Applications. I love people, making a difference, and warm Costa Rican weather.
