Hello all you inventors, entrepreneurs, movers and shakers, and doers out there! I am the Managing Director of IGA; curator of social media content and the IGA newsletters! Back when I won the NEXTies Award in 2015, I knew I was going in the right direction. I always wanted to be an inventor, I just didn’t know how to make it a career! A former inventRight student, 2.5 years later, 80 rejections, and an uncompleted contract, I have finally signed a licensing deal for four of my products in the dorm room industry! I am devoted to helping other inventors get the resources they need to become successful as well!
