Utique, Live Nation, entrepreneur. www.linkedin.com/in/mockus/ I am a technology and business strategy executive with over 20 years of experience across a variety of sectors. My primary focus is taking early stage companies or projects from concept to release and providing technical oversight and leadership as an advisory board member to small and mid-sized companies with a technical focus. My speciality is refining and executing innovative technical solutions in new and evolving markets. "Innovative technical solutions" means I love to do things that have never been done before. "New and evolving markets" means I usually have worked without a decent budget, in a shortened amount of time, and built things years before somebody has coined a buzzword for it. At some point in time I've done about every position in a company. I am a proud generalist that is less concerned with a job title and more interested in getting things done. I find that having a broad understanding of all aspects of a business has allowed me to distill exceptionally large projects into prioritized actionable tasks. I'm determined, resilient, optimistic, flexible and the one who remains calm when times are tough. I solve problems. I am currently involved in my own venture, but I am always interested in speaking with people working on disrupting a market so feel free to drop me a line.
