Larry Cornett is a leadership coach and career advisor at Brilliant Forge LLC in northern California. He enjoys helping ambitious people forge more invincible careers so that they get to call the shots in their work and life. But, he also spent over 20 years in the Silicon Valley Tech industry as a designer, UX leader, Product executive, and startup founder. He worked for a number of smaller companies and larger corporations, including IBM, Apple Computer, eBay, and Yahoo. He somehow leveraged a PhD in Psychology to become an entry-level designer and researcher, then spent the rest of his career working his way up into management, executive leadership, and eventually founding his own Tech startup as the CEO.
