Key Accomplishments

While I've been a key part of the founding teams at two other startups (Wholesecurity and MPower Labs), Tabbedout has been my first go as Founding CEO. We raised capital from a tier 1 investor in NEA, have grown a consumer brand in the competitive mobile payments space and are on the cusp of reaching initial scale having recently struck a deal that will expand our network to > 10,000 merchants. It has been incredibly rewarding to take Tabbedout from concept to product to company and I am excited to apply the many lessons learned throughout this experience to my next venture with other talented folks looking to change the way the world works.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am comfortable with risk, love the idea of creating important new products with talented people and have a good sense for when it is appropriate to be exploratory as well as when it is time to focus. Having led a number of substantial fund raising efforts and served as a Director on Tabbedout's Board for 4+ years, I have had the good fortune to learn from successful entrepreneurs, investors and fellow executives yet am also self-aware about what my talents are and where I benefit from others with differing skillsets.
