about

Hi, I’m Dan.  I’m a technologist and strategist. I help companies make money and build competitive advantages with new technologies:

Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Data Science
IoT
Cloud & Analytics
Infrastructure and Data Storage

I actively research the rapidly changing high-tech markets to discover assets and build partnerships that can be used to deliver highly innovative solutions that align with corporate strategy. I have worked with and reviewed more than 200 large and smaller venture-backed companies in AI, ML, Cloud, Analytics, IoT, and many other areas.

I have also written and led the design for large enterprise software systems. This gives me a unique perspective on buy v. build. I seek to understand how each company’s software and solutions actually work at a fundamental level.

I study companies and corporate strategy. I do not believe you can build a modern data architecture or software without developing a deep understanding of the company’s values, opportunities, capabilities, people and competitive landscape or without knowing the users like friends.

I have reviewed hundreds of business plans and written dozens of pro formas. I integrate this knowledge with technology design and IT strategy across departments.

Finally, I prefer to work with people, not computers. My goal is to make everyone I work with and for happier and more productive especially customers. This is the most important part of any strategy in my opinion and is fundamental to how I live my life.

Thanks for reading!
