Full bio

I am skilled in strategizing and leading market entry initiatives for emerging technology products. My experience across multiple organizational functions has trained me to focus on the wider context and act pragmatically while balancing competing priorities.

During the SARS epidemic in 2003 I was responsible for ensuring that the WHO’s web infrastructure scaled to support the 20X increase in web traffic as the world sought information relating to the crisis. 

I am also the founder of the Corkbin wine app, which was acquired by Hello Vino. My experience and insights of the mobile app industry is documented in my book, The Evolution and Dynamics of the Mobile App Economy: Strategies for Innovating and Marketing Mobile Apps.
