You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I was the CEO of SpeakerText, a crowdsourced virtual labor business. My co-founders & I built the company to 10-people, created a 45,000+ global worker community, grew the business to six-figure revenues, raised $1.1MM from Google Ventures, Mitch Kapor & 500 Startups and sold the company to a competitor.

Previously, I worked as a reporter for the NY Times, 911 ambulance driver in the Bronx, fought forest fires in Montana, won various journalism & writing awards, and graduated from Columbia University with honors.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I've done it before and I have the scars to prove it. At the very least, i know what not to do.

I have built and run a startup as CEO, taking it from product idea to 10-person team with over $1MM seed funding in the bank, all the way through to acquisition. Since then, I have invested in expanding my technical skillset, learning HTML, CSS, and JavaScript/jQuery.

While I know how to fundraise and PR/marketing comes naturally to me, my main passio is product, customers and community. I am obsessed with transforming BUTTR from hacky MVP to awesome social commerce experience.
