Make better decisions. Remember every detail. Turn your brain on "high". Remember PF Flyers? Their slogan was "Run Faster, Jump Higher - with PF Flyers". WebNutrients are just like that - but for your mind. We make custom, natural brain nutrients (nootropics). They help you become radically faster, smarter and clearer thinking. If you saw the movie Limitless, that's our True North. We can get you to ~60-75% of that right now. And getting better every day. We undo the damage that 5-Hour Energy, Red Bull and a triple machiatto do to your mind and body. And replace it with crystal-clear thinking. Solid decision making. Intense focus. The ability to juggle complex ideas. Improved pattern recognition. Eliminate ADD/ADHD. Bring on project completion. We started down this path in 1993.

Chief Evangelist at PRWebFebruary 2004 - September 2006
An advisor to PRWeb and David McInnis, the CEO and founder. I am a client and ardent user of PRWeb. Started using it in 1998, then again from 2002 to current. I spent my time working to increase the market visibility of the platform, and shared techniques on how to optimize online PR and Online Media. Stupidly, I turned down an offer to join the executive team in 2004. My commitment to ThoughtOffice was etched in stone... During that time, and because of David, Al Castle and team's commitment and understanding of all things social media and syndication, PRWeb became the leader in online PR.

Worked for the CEO (Robert Lotter), an exceptional leader and one of the strongest visionaries in the life insurance industry.
Managing Director, Irvine Incubator at TechCoast.comJanuary 2000 - October 2000
I worked with a handful of technologists, web developers and Angel Investors/VC's to accelerate (mostly internet) startups during the end of the first dot-com boom. When I arrived in my office, there were more than 500 business plans piled up, awaiting review. Throughout the next 9 months, we worked diligently to create an intelligent, wired workspace for startups; provide VC and Angel investor introductions,; review business plans and counsel startup companies, and engage sponsors for various projects to support the Southern California internet and technology space. From co-crafting the business plans, coaching CEO's and doing investor introductions, I handled every aspect of the TechCoast program.
