    Founder and Healthcare Educator

    educator/author - enthusiastic and effective
    entrepreneur/team player - visionary and committed.

    As a paramedic, I came to love life-saving technology. I've been teaching 12-Lead ECG for 20 years since. I'm a published author (and successful learning tools developer) eager to take it all up a few notches with the PlanetECG team. This will help to change outcomes for people experiencing heart attack.

    Founder and CEO

    designer/engineer - perceptive, meticulous, smart and sensible
    leader/entrepreneur - social, tenacious, visionary and realistic

    I've led user-facing technology projects: starting with strategy, and flowing right down to the detailed tactical level. I get the P&L picture, and am very comfortable driving execution.

    Years in Silicon Valley and in High Performance sport altered my DNA, rendering me very tenacious and determined.
