Key Accomplishments

I founded the social Q&A site Formspring in 2009, wrote the original code and managed the infrastructure as it grew to 1 million registered users in less than 45 days, the fastest of any standalone social site to date. I served as CEO as the company grew to over 30 employees, 30 million registered users, and raised $14M in VC funding. Prior to Formspring, I founded Formstack in 2006, a profitable company of 20 employees based in Indianapolis, IN. I started two other smaller companies early in my career, and have a B.A. in Computer Science & Mathematics from Anderson University.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring practical product and engineering skills, as well as the experience of having built several companies with failures and successes in a wide range of areas. From bootstrapping a company to profitability, to raising $14M from angels and VCs. From building SaaS products for SMBs, to a rapidly growing social app.
