Born on the East Coast, grew up outside of Chicago. Spent the first half of my life as a soccerhead.
Became a web nerd, basically. Started out blogging, got into building web communities, and took the full plunge in 2009 into my first startup, Foodtree, co-founded and funded in Vancouver, Canada.
After Vancouver, I moved down to SF in 2012 to help a friend with a company called Playerize – still the best-named company I’ve worked on. The logo was a cute penguin. Branding, man.
That company became SuperRewards and sold to Perk.com in 2016. That same year (same month, actually), Foodtree was sold as well to a company called Mobify. My parents were confused, mostly that I wasn’t rich as a result.
I’m now in Denver, Colorado and don’t plan on leaving.
