You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

5 years ago I co founded a 3d web mmo/mmorpg company with myself and 1 other partner. We created from scratch a series of web games that to date has had over 90 million unique visitors over 5 years. At it's peak we had 2+ million monthly active users. My first attempt at a startup began my journey of entrepreneurship and unlocked my passion for amazing products. From there I spent the last 2 years obsessing over metrics, measurement and honing my product development skills.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I would but happy to share my experiences of working in the video game industry for over 10 years now. I strongly believe my input can save you hundred of thousands of dollars in wasted effort if you are trying to develop new video game products.

He also has a high level of curiosity I rarely see in people. He will explore and study to no end until he is satisfied with a concept. He challenges ideas and processes to ensure they're airtight.
