Always focused on growth, I look for industries that are just reaching that sweet spot 1-2 years before market saturation. Im currently involved as an investor, advisor, and as a product advocate with a handful of technology startups, an organic farm, a farm to fork cafe, a software consultancy, and a pair of stealth initiatives. Im an entrepreneurial leader always looking for new projects to add value to.
Business and Startup Portfolio
Im a product guy and I love solving problems and scaling products. Whether it be tackling access to justice in the court system or finding more efficient ways of connecting travelers, Ive worked on a wide variety of unique projects. In 2013, I began helping legal organizations scale their businesses and think about innovation in a new way. I was immediately recognized by the National Center for State Courts as leader for innovation and have continued to focus on solving challenges for attorneys ever since. I also dove headfirst into farming and agriculture when I started Little Apple Ranch, a small farm in Northern California. Working with Alpacas and Sheep teaches me a daily lesson in patience and much of it goes right back into my work life. Sheep dont really listen, they dont understand the greater purpose the way we do…so being able to apply lessons from the farm is very useful in work.

Little Apple Ranch grew out of my love for animals and nature. Based in Apple Hill, California, one of the most beautiful growing regions in the state, Im building a home for a wide variety of animals, plants, and trees
I built SimpleCase to simplify collection, preparation, and presentation of facts in legal proceedings. Simple is a case facts timeline that will save attorneys and self represented litigants significant time and money and can even be used by judges to normalize facts in a case. I began development in September 2019 as a Skunkworks project in conjunction with Nationwide Legal and am planning an early 2022 launch.
The Argonaut sits on historic ground in Coloma, Ca, where the great Gold Rush of 1849 started. The cafe sits in the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park and serves healthy breakfast and lunch options as well as kick-ass gelato and Temple coffee. Im a bit biased, but most visitors agree that it is the best healthy dining option in Gold Country and since much of the produce comes from our farm next door, it is a unique farm to table expxerience.
Bee Love Farms is my home away from home and it serves as a learning garden for many of California’s elementary students. The farm has unique learning stations that teach visitors about the lifecycle of plants and animals. In addition, much of the produce goes to supply the argonaut We do farm tours as well as farm dinners in the summer
