Clients are frequently amazed by the energy Colt brings to the biggest, most complex projects. With over 15 years of experience designing and launching and delivering new solutions, he takes a scrappy approach to finding the leanest, most cost-effective ways to rapidly drive yield for clients. In the process, he has earned five industry awards for product excellence.
Before VisiQuate, Colt worked as VP and General Manager for Democarsoft an innovative developer and licensor of social collaboration and productivity tools. For 10 years he played a dual role supporting both their product development and product marketing departments. Before that Colt ran his own company based on a novelty product he designed, developed, took to market and grew to over 10,000 units per month. He later sold the company, which is still in operation today.
Colt has a degree in Business and Japanese from Willamette University and Kansai University respectively and lives in Santa Rosa, where he recently finished a two-story treehouse for his son, Adrien. When Colt isn’t busy accelerating development cycles, or climbing trees, he has a few other tricks up his sleeve. Literally. He has studied close-up magic from some of the best-known Masters in the U.S. and Japan, and has honed his craft so well that he is called on regularly for performances, and is a Professor of Magic at Santa Rosa Junior College. Colt has also perfected a modernized version of Polynesian Fire Dancing, but promises not to demonstrate it in your office.
