A guy walks into a cantina...

I have had the fortune of taking a non-linear path through various parts of a startup ecosystem. My journey has included stops at a VC firm, several startups, an accelerator, and humble beginnings in university tech transfer.  Along the way I've been witness to greatness, mediocrity, and a little evil.  Storytelling is fundamental to being human, so thanks for stopping by to share in my expression of humanity.  I hope that this blog serves both the selfish need to share my narrative, while engendering thoughtful dialog about a startup world not located on a coast.
