I split my time as a professor of strategy and entrepreneurship at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and as an executive for technology startups. In between that I am working on my doctorate degree at the Manchester Business School in Manchester, England. I also have a degree in design and advertising, and I love beautiful things. I am happily married to my wife Jenn, she is a homemaker, and we live with a clowder of cats in Palos Verdes. I am a native SoCal surfer that loves to travel the world and life live to its fullest. No pretensions or closed mindedness, open to everything.
