My career experience is long and varied. But the common threads that run through it are problem-solving and entrepreneurship. I love to create something new, whether it is a book, software, or a company. I derive great pleasure in solving high-level puzzles of organization, technology, and markets. At the same time, I love to solve the low-level puzzles posed, say, by seemingly-intractable software bugs. I live to solve problems!
