Years of OSS/BSS and network operations experience on the inside of big telco, product marketing and lead generation for carrier class solutions like wireless location services and mobile wallet, sales executive and SEC registered IPO Insider at a Silicon Valley mobile startup and more recently as a pioneering designer of mobile devices and SaaS addressing healthcare.
My first of several inventions was filed with the USPTO in May 2002. The relevant body of work relates to devices and methods for obtaining data from external as well as implanted biometric and drug delivery devices (eg – blood glucose meters, insulin pumps, pedometers, accelerometers and other data-enabled instruments), transmitting that data from remote locations and delivering feedback to the right person at the right time in the right format as behavioral feedback.
To implement that vision I recruited a team and partners to develop mobile devices and cloud based systems including follow-on evaluation in the field. Unlike most mobile tech targeting health care, my team was successful in proving effectiveness via scientific research as one of the earliest examples of mobile and health care integration.
I have extensive experience in startup strategy, fundraising, negotiating, contracts, evaluating key personnel, outsourcing, writing and managing both public and private grants and public-private collaborations.
As CEO of Diabetech, in 2009 I licensed the company’s technologies to third party medical device manufacturers. I remain current in the fields of mobile devices, cloud based systems and health IT convergence among other interests.
