I traveled the globe consulting in IT after Cornell EE 1991, returned States-side in 1994 to marry my Cornell sweetheart (HUEC '91, now a leading Pediatric Radiology researcher and clinician) and earned an M.B.A. at Harvard.
Since then, I started as an advisor, and now for the last decade have been a entrepreneurial growth strategist, both at the helm of start-ups and in multinationals founding new divisions in cleantech (tapping my Cornell EE atomic physics training in crystalline silicon solar/photovoltaic innovations).
Currently, I co-founded and lead a chronic wound diagnostic start-up, spending my time fiercely marketing our model for both seed funding and rapid commercialization. I'm very excited that one vein of our business strategy has us engaged with Cornell's Vet School to trial early indication of equine arthritis using our same wound diagnostic assay. Cornell is, for me, an ongoing and deepening relationship, and after spending time on campus in the summer of 2013, my kids kindled their love affair with Cornell and Ithaca as well.
