About me & my work:

I am the co-founder of Kakele House Hawaii, a private club and culinary experience where members create life changing meals with celebrity chefs on a beautiful farm estate in Hawaii. I also run R1 Partners, which creates strategies and builds new business lines for major sports, media, technology, design, and entertainment companies.

My first job had me working 10 stories up in the rigging of a square rigged museum ship. I failed computer science and went from Corporate Security Officer at Lotus software to the CTO at NBC television in 7 years. At NBC I evaluated investments and partnerships in new areas including interactive television, broadband, mobile, gaming, telematics, data management and electronic commerce. I also had some fun as an executive at Warner Music Group and worked at both IBM Research and as a Senior Advisor to Def Jam Enterprises.

I am also an active board member and co-owner of WME/IMG Sports' Formula Drift LLC, a global motorsports championship series.

When asked what my greatest work accomplishment is, I say it was when I chased, arrested, testified against and returned to prison a serial rapist who was out on parole for murder while I was an $8.50 security guard at the Westin Hotel in Boston. $8.50 well spent.

I married a professional race car driver. I like to mix it up and I've met some amazing people.
