Our founding board of directors has more than 100 years of technology and business acumen. Our board has started several companies, led sales and marketing teams, run P&L for large businesses, driven corporate acquisitions, been acquired, created new businesses within existing companies, filed patents, and identified promising innovation for investment. We formed Live Learn Innovate Foundation (LLIF) because we see deficiencies in personal data collection, data analytics, wellness, data privacy, and data governance. We believe that LLIF will be transformational to people, communities, and businesses.
Founder and Chairman of the Board
I am a lifelong observer, learner, builder, teacher, investor, partner, and philosopher pursuing impactful ways to help. As a Distinguished System Engineer at Cisco, I repeatedly helped to create and incubate new products and solutions to fill gaps in technology and operations with the goal of helping customer lower, costs, increase agility, reduce risk, and improve experience. LLIF is a manifestation of that same pursuit for people and businesses.
I am a passionate global technology leader with a track record of success in building successful teams. With a combination of experience as an in-house Fortune 10 technology leader, a large team leader and individual contributor for leading tech providers (both technical and sales teams), and as an entrepreneur, I bring unique perspectives to the technology landscape. My familiarity with multiple domains ranging from cyber security, converged compute platforms, networking, proxy and network services, wireless, and now trade plant, and big data analytics has built a solid foundation for bringing value to the client and my teams and colleagues.
After running product lines within all three of Cisco’s primary businesses, I founded FactorChain to fill an industry security analytics gap. At FactorChain, we built the first cloud native multi-tenant Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) which led to our being acquired by Sumo Logic and my current role as VP of Security Solutions.
