Taz Lake
Founder. Incubator. Technology Consultant. Author. Instructor. Screenwriter. Producer.

I am a genre-defying, collaborative, digital leader. A passion for emerging web technologies tore me away from medicine and science early in my career. After 20+ years I still go where I'm needed to help organizations improve.
Digital. Technical. Professional.

I am a founder, technologist, author, instructor and entrepreneur. I attended high school in Hawaii before graduating from Duke University. A Certificate in the Arts offset my pre-med Chemistry studies. A natural propensity for technology turned me early to the world wide web. After two more graduate degrees covering communications, anthropology, information systems and business I'm more than twenty years into a great technology career.

As the son of an enlisted Marine and first of my family to go to college – the mission has always mattered. My versatility and go anywhere approach has led to success for both me and those I serve.

I've been an award-winning employee at many large companies. Top-rated instructor at two universities. Formal mentor. Technical program manager. Web technology specialist. Published author. Screenwriter. Director. Business owner. Board member for many non-profits and associations.

Now Brightmill Labs runs tiny trials to prove big ideas in SaaS marketplaces. Crabby Rabbit Productions is my movie production company.

I have enjoyed excelling at diverse pursuits including krav maga, chess, watercolor painting, and singing. I also tell jokes that make my engineer wife and teenage daughter roll their eyes.

In my "spare time" find me watching Duke basketball, playing chess or reading up on technology related to automobiles, military planes, new nuclear power, and artificial intelligence.

Let me know how I can help you next.
