Key Accomplishments

Out of college my first job was working with subprime customers and gaining a first hand look into how terrible most people are with their finances. That lead me into wanting to pursue a consultancy that taught people to navigate credit and personal finance.

I held on to the idea and began working at a law firm. While there, I encountered many of the same issues with homeowners seeking mediation after foreclosure. In late 2010 I found Startup Weekend through a podcast and sought out an event to get out my idea. Pretty much ended up running an event instead. Best detour ever.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Listening ear.
Decisiveness.
Execution.
