About me

I am...

I love figuring out how to get a startup from idea to break-through & success. Perhaps because I did swim uncharted waters early on. At 26, the study of the deepest offshore rig worldwide. At 33, the first SAP consolidation system. At 40, as CEO, raised $50M for a Telco. Later, I became the first CFO (or CEO or COO) of many SMEs in EU/USA, worked/advised 15+ startups, raising $120+M.
