Arthur C. Clarke, the science fiction writer and futurist, is credited with three laws relating to technology, one of which is, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

I am old enough to remember the world before the internet and Windows operating systems; mobile phones were only found in fancy cars; and cassette tapes were how we listened to our favorite music.   To my younger self, the idea of using a single device to watch TV, read a book, listen to music or act as a personal computer would have seemed like magic.

If advanced technology is akin to magic, then those who create it are magicians.  They make what seems impossible, possible.  Magic may not be real (except the Elf on the Shelf…how did she get up there?), but the need for companies to raise capital certainly is.  Even magicians need to pay for rabbits and hats.

Whether my clients are the magicians themselves or those providing funding for their vision, I relish the opportunity to help them achieve their objectives in any way I can.  And if I can’t directly help, I know someone in this group can.

When I’m not geeking out on new tech or financing documentation, I spend as much time as possible with my family and enjoy watching football (go Bills – and my fantasy teams), working out in some manner, reading dystopian novels, and crushing Waze’s ETA whenever I get behind the wheel.
