I have 20 years of experience working with venture funded Silicon Valley technology startups, mid-size ($30 to $500 million) and Fortune 500 companies. Recently this also includes festivals, conferences and sustainable/green (LOHAS). These markets are starting to converge. For example, the C2SV Music/Technology Festival, the SF Music Tech Conference, Earth Day SF (sustainable meets music) and Wisdom 2.0 (wisdom meets business) are all convergence events that I was hired to promote.

My networks and relationships with 25,000 early adopters, journalists, authors, inventors, musicians, artists, investors and analysts create a rare “bridge” between these communities.

Here are a few tech companies I have worked with.

Wisdom 2.0 – Mindfulness / Business conference with executives from Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Medium.  (acq. Penthouse)- one of the world’s largest online social networks/dating service with 30,000 websites
