I am the founder of the early stage tech startup Porchlight. Porchlight helps you "share the love" with your inner circle of family and friends. It's an app that makes knowing HOW someone is doing easy, even in a busy world. My diverse 30-year career includes starting, growing and successfully selling a local company and a C-level position at an industry leading corporation. These experiences have given me a unique perspective on the roles of technology in society, and the changing expectations of employees and consumers. There has never been more opportunity to start a business and make an impact in the world!
