You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Business intelligence • Analytics • Community Building • Community Management • Web Analytics

Key Accomplishments

Lots of analytics, product management, marketing and startup experience.

I'm currently an executive at The Coveteur, focusing on scaling the company.

I have advised many startups both formally and informally. Today, my portfolio includes Sampler, The New Hive, KISSmetrics, and dishcrawl.

I've been involved at the executive level with others including PostRank (acquired by Google) CoTweet (acquired by ExactTarget), Akoha (sunset in 2010) and (funded by Foundry, GRP and others for $4m, acquired in 2014).

I've run the Marketing team & Conference team for Decibel Festival in Seattle.

I've been involved in over 50 conferences in the last 5 years, including acting as co-chair for Ignite Montreal, Ignite Chirp, Bitnorth and YULtide. I was also involved in the creation and curation of Startup Festival in Montreal. This is topical since the ideas I'm noodling on surround the events management space.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Funding, quite a bit of startup experience (both business and technical), and lots of history in building products and marketing strategies with startups. I have experience in growing startups, and fewer delusions than first time entrepreneurs have in growing them.

As an Advisor

I advise early stage startups, with a particular focus on media and SaaS business models, and I'm passionate about businesses that revolve around data, analytics, music or gaming.
