I have held numerous positions in one of the premier technology companies of Silicon Valley, Hewlett-Packard during the pre- and post-dot-com boom. Have worked on technology partnerships and furthering the adoption of new technology with leading OEMs. In various technology marketing and management positions, held over 11 years, I have set and managed to marketing business objectives, set sales targets and pricing, managed marketing staffs and developed communications strategies for trade shows, advertising, product literature and promotional materials. Have also traveled extensively throughout the US and the Far East, meeting with R&D directors on the technology market and HP’s product directions. Early in my career, I worked to improve manufacturing processes on newly developed fiber optic components and hold a patent on packaging. I most recently have focused on working as a leader and volunteer for numerous non-profit groups in the SF East Bay and have held a local sales position.
