👨💻 I am a sales leader and investor.
💡 I founded the advisory firms Montlhéry and VoltChem. We find funded innovative process equipment manufacturers and grow them through activities that accelerate their adoption by commercial and industrial facilities.

💼 With over a decade of experience in the industry, I have a proven track record of success in various roles. I began my career working for the industrial division of Austin Industries, the largest general contractor in Texas. From 2015 to 2020, I held several positions at De Nora, a leading provider of equipment, systems, disinfection, and filtration solutions for water and wastewater treatment. During my time at De Nora, I played a key role in the company's R&D testing programs and the successful launch of new products, such as BALPURE and ClorTec Gen III, which have become top performers in their respective equipment categories. Additionally, I oversaw the execution of water treatment packages for major power plants, municipalities, ships, and offshore O&G production platforms. My team and I also identified a significant opportunity for the use of our systems in oilfield wastewater recycling, resulting in the development of an 8-figure revenue stream from that market.
