Marcy Swenson
They're my advisor  •  Executive Coach, Previously COO, MaestroConference. Stanford grad. University of California, Los Angeles grad.
Steve was the first engineer I hired when I was a co-founder at CPTH; he built the mail server that allowed us to IPO 4 years later. We have ... remained friends for the past 15 years, and I've watched as he built his leadership skills, clarified what he was interested in, and finally took on the role of CEO. I work with him as an executive coach, and I've been impressed with his thoughtfulness, tenacity, and willingness to grow. You'll have a fun time as his co-founder, but you'll work hard! Enjoy!
Joyce Kim
They're my friends  •  Executive Director, Stellar Development Foundation and Advisor, Freestyle Capital. Cornell grad. Harvard grad.
Steve is incredibly thoughtful and is able to use his skills to effectively bridge the gap between product and tech. He is a developer with ... a keen sense of usability. And he is a product person who can actually build the products he dreams of. Whenever I have bounced ideas off of Steve or asked him to give me feedback on a project, he always provides meaningful insight.

I highly recommend Steve. He has plenty of real-world experience as an entrepreneur, and his excitement when discussing his current initiati ... ves is palpable.
