I have over 30 years of professional experience in marketing, corporate finance, management, strategic planning, mergers & acquisitions, venture development, data network design, and systems design & development in several industries, including telecommunications, information technology, entertainment, computer manufacturing, and financial services. Companies that I have worked with ranged from startups to Fortune 100 companies in the U.S. and globally, including AT&T Bell Labs as a Member of the Technical Staff, at MCI as the Director of Corporate Development, and at IBM leading the development of the business plan of a new global service. I have worked in various capacities as a CEO & CFO in several startups, and as a partner or consultant in several international consulting firms, including Booz Allen, Gemini, McKenna, and TechSynergy, with a total M&A deal size of over $6 Billion.

I have been teaching at De Anza College since 2011. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and hiking with my three dogs. I hold a second-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I hope to see you in my classes. If you have any question about the classes I teach, please do not hesitate to contact me via email (if you are not in my classes), Canvas messaging (if you are in my classes), or come see me during my office hours.
