Companies I've founded or co-founded:
Achievements (products built, personal awards won):

Founded Validic, healthcare's leading platform for connecting patient generated health data with the enterprise. Invented VitalSnap, an OCR technology that enables millions of patients with untethered medical devices in the home to connect that data with their healthcare providers.

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

Being an entrepreneur is all I've ever done. Also, I love solving hard problems.

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Most frustrating: how long it takes to find product/market fit and gain real traction. Most rewarding: having people stumble over themselves to pay for something you built.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

Ignoring market feedback.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

1. If someone isn't interested in paying for your product, ask them what they would pay for. 2. Reputations follow you, so treat everyone well. 3. We are so fortunate to be living in an era where it is this easy to start a new company and iterate on ideas.
