    An engineer by training, I’ve worked as a marketing and sales exec for most of my career. I am the COO at Tulip Retail, a startup focused on delivering a mobile platform for sales associates working for big retailers. At Tulip I am responsible for Marketing, Sales, Solutions and Customer Success. Previously I’ve run marketing and sales at a number of startups including Infobright, DataMirror (acquired by IBM), Janna Systems (acquired by Siebel Systems), Sitraka (acquired by Quest software), Watcom (acquired by Sybase). I’ve also been a marketing exec at few larger companies where I’ve focused on launching and growing new product lines including IBM, Nortel and Siebel Systems.

    I do a lot of speaking to audiences of startup folks or marketers in general. Some examples of recent talk can be seen below or on my Slideshare page.
