Optimize Your Value

I'm a serial entrepreneur with a background in science and tech. My passion is working with entrepreneurs seeking to grow, or transition their companies. I find opportunities for value creation and enhancement, new efficiency, and new revenue.

I'm a business advisor, strategist, coach - I don't tell you on how to structure your business, I work with you to create a business that works for you.  You'll develop your business as a system that works by itself, so you can be the forward-looking entrepreneur.   

Everything we will do together is customized to your need and to your company - where you are in the business life cycle.  And your investment will pay for itself - guaranteed.  


I founded, grew, and sold several companies; most recently a contract research laboratory called Averica Discovery.  For years I've worked with with business owners, team builders, and entrepreneurs.  Now I do it full time: I find ways to optimize revenue and efficiency, and I find my clients more time in their days. 


I think businesses are systems that are linked inextricably with their founders, their leaders, their passionate owners and operators.  My passion is working with both the business and its people as a unit, and finding ways to grow value.
