Hi – thanks for stopping by.
I am the General Manager of Payments at Mitek Systems in San Diego. If you’ve ever deposited a check by taking a picture of it with your mobile phone, then you’ve probably used our technology.
I have been in the tech industry for most of my career and have worked through various arcs of interactive banking technology, including interactive voice response, online banking, mobile banking, mobile payments, and finally mobile check deposit.
I have led business teams in Latin America, Europe, Asia and North America from my home office in the the Midwest while working remotely for California-based tech companies. As a result, I’ve picked up a few tricks on how to make that all work.
I was in Military Intelligence when I was in the US Army Reserve and am a veteran of Operation Desert Storm (Kuwait City) and Operation Provide Comfort (Kurdish refugee crisis following Desert Storm). I have carried either a computer, a backpack, or a weapon through over 25 countries. Of the three, I prefer the computer.
I have spoken at a number of conferences. Here is a cool graphic recording from one of my presentations on innovation.
On average I blog once per week and focus on leadership, innovation and personal effectiveness. I write for smart people who are interested in spending a few minutes thinking about these important topics and considering how they can improve their performance.
Apart from a few affiliate links to defray my compulsive Amazon book-buying habit, I am not selling anything here. This blog is a passion project to share insights and learnings with others. I hope you’ll visit often.
Finally, I am an optimist. It’s an exciting time to be alive.
