I’m a Technology CEO and Experienced Entrepreneur. I love helping people use technology to grow their business.

  • Technology has completely changed the way people seek and get knowledge, communicate and work
  • Yet only a small percentage, 28% of people regularly try new products and technology, most people stick with tried and true things they know
  • Younger men and higher-income adults are more often early technology adopters
  • Extroverts are also more likely than introverts to strongly prefer new technology products.
