On returning to Oklahoma State University as the new Entrepreneur in Residence in 2015: Nostalgic, for sure. Campus has changed so much since I graduated in 2009.

What he’s been up to lately: Working for Bank of America Merill Lynch on leadership support and tactics. Here, I focus on building an ‘X’ team by taking the best principles and practices of the startup ecosystem and innovation economy and applying them to the Bank and across the financial sector.
On his recent keynote speech at Tulsa’s 36DegreesNorth: I was honored, to say the least. It’s a privilege to be considered a reference for Tulsa entrepreneurs.
