Key Accomplishments

I've been passionately driven to create things that connect with audiences for over 15 years; and that ranges from feature films to coding my own, and later, other clients websites. My single largest strength lies in leading collaborative teams in ways that enable extraction of core goals and setting up frameworks for delivering on those goals. My single largest weakness is that I sometimes don't delegate when I should and take on too many things because I assume they won't be done "right" by others. It's an assumption I'm always working on overcoming.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

The most frequent question I've been asked over my last 5-6 years in leadership roles is "When can I come work for you?" It comes both from people who have, and have not worked with me, and I consider it a great compliment.

I work hard to be fair and to be a detail-oriented enabler so that teams I work with can achieve to their highest-capacity.

I have an excellent capacity for creating deals and business structures that are win-win (and win, sometimes!) for everyone involved; and I do not believe in zero-sum games in the world of human and business relationships.

As an Advisor

I love crafting win-win-win deals and I'm always looking to be constructive. As an advisor, I prefer to work via email or phone perhaps 1-2 hours each month for the entrepreneurs I work with.

George Kellerman
They're my advisor
Jon is a great entrepreneur because he has a strong vision and is willing to sacrifice everything in order to achieve it. He's super intell ... igent, highly creative, and a great leader. I'm highly selective about the companies I advise, and Jon is one of the few entrepreneurs who I believe in enough to dedicate my time.
Scott Einziger
They're my investor
He has all the DNA to be one.

We worked together  •  Co-Founder, Point News Trivia Executive Producer & Reporter, PandoDaily. Former Anchor/Reporter, Forbes
He is not just an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs’ sake. He truly is an expert in his field who’s been at every level in his industry (ca ... ble and interactive production), and has discovered a market he knows needs a solution. So he’s creating it. He’s managed, been in product development, written the spec, sourced the vendors, and delivered product to market successfully. I would consider him that solid blend of technology, creative, and production – something you don’t find every day in an entrepreneur since most are so young and lack overall experience. I believe the lack of experience, and not enough knowledge of industry is why 75% of venture-backed companies fail. It’s not enough to just have an idea for a solution to fix a problem. You have to have broad-based knowledge of the industry, contacts deep into organizations critical to your success, and the ability to enable a team to support and execute on your vision. Jon has a proven record of that. What I admire about him as well is he not only uses his vast resources to support his efforts, but also that of others. He’s always available with a helping hand, which I believe exemplifies a true entrepreneurial spirit in which this community can truly benefit.
