Why Hire a Coach

Every elite athlete has a personal coach.

What do they know that you do not?


I help intelligent highly trained technical entrepreneurs build successful businesses..

I can't teach you to run a company but I can help you run it better.


Short Sketch

I bring my experience as Business Executive, Entrepreneur and Mechanical Engineer to help technical founders of hardware companies build successful businesses.


I coach members of startup companies on business strategy, operations, and product development as Executive in Residence at Greentown Labs and mentor early stage companies across the cleantech ecosystem of Greater Boston.

I recently taught Management in Engineering and Elements of Mechanical Design at MIT and am an instructor with Field Studies Projects at Brandeis International School of Business (IBS).
