After being the Marketing Director for Costa Rica Outward Bound in San Jose, Costa Rica, I made the decision to go out into the cold(Literally) and return to Minnesota to start my own consulting business. I work with about 20 different startups right now in varying degrees of involvement. Some as a mentor through accelerator programs like Growthup, Startup Highway, Astana Innovations, and Bel.biz, others as direct clients for my consulting business. In addition, I’m a regular speaker and panelist at startup events in the region.
I'm the type of guy that likes to take good ideas, good teams, and combine them with the good marketing that will help them achieve on a global level. I work hard, think fast and live for the adventure. Let's get some good things done!

I was an attendee at the first Skolkovo event in December of 2010 after being invited by Irina Vekselberg, and wrote an internet marketing plan for Skolkovo in 2011. I’ve always been a supporter of Skolkovo from the very beginning. As for being a mentor, it’s something I really enjoy and am good at. In addition, I do a lot of business in the Russian speaking world, and a relationship with Skolkovo would be helpful for that objective as well.
All types so long as I connect with the founders and their objectives I can work with them
