Key Accomplishments

I have built, shipped and sold software for nearly 15 years. In the last 5 years I have been an active angel investor and advisor by helping more than 10 companies from product design to fund raising. Importantly, I've also failed at creating an exit for a tech startup which taught me more than all the previous stuff I listed.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Incredible energy, huge network and the ability to get shit done.

Bubba is a dynamo. He's high energy, incredibly personable and wicked smart. There is no doubt he will be a successful founder.

We worked together at Facebook
Bubba is a great combination of brilliant product mind with incredible human being. Everyone knows Bubba and everyone loves him. He has a ... very strong technical background which allows him to approach and understand any situation. Additionally, Bubba is relentless of his pursuit of a solution. He chases down and continue to attack a problem until he masters it. Finally, he is very thoughtful in his approach to pulling people into the fold - he seeks out other's advice and input and listens to what they say. In doing so, he not only finds a better solution but also builds consensus along the way.
