Having advised my share of startups, I saw a team prepared to rethink as necessary to succeed in mobile. When the PointAbout founders suggested I run the consulting side of PointAbout, I felt that entrepreneurial gauntlet hit me. My passion in IT has always been for the growth and success of my hires; that's where I get a sense of impact. Here is an opportunity to grow an already successful company, and it's a very cool place to work."
