I help executives and entrepreneurs survive and thrive at building their teams and businesses.
I provide Executive Advisor & Business Coach services through Revelry Labs. I am also heavily involved in Revelry Ventures and work with our startup studio partners. Internally, I help the team level up within the Revelry organization as we continue to scale.
I have been building online communities for 19 years, working as community architect, product designer, social marketer, customer developer, founder and startup advisor for companies including Primeloop, 500Startups, LaunchRock, Zappos, UserVoice, and Seesmic.
While I have a technical background, I prefer to speak in gardening and architecture metaphors. I am inspired by storytelling, psychology, evangelism, architectural theory, social economics, game mechanics, cultural anthropology, digital ethnography, compassion, and ants.
I was studying to become a missionary, but left that path because I grew tired of the business of religion. Now, I help entrepreneurs and businesses convert customers and employees into communities of evangelists.
Oh, and I fall in love with almost everyone I meet.
