Key Accomplishments

I started at Yext (an internet marketing/web presence management startup) as the fifth member of the team and helped it grow over the next three years. When I started my own textbook marketplace company after I graduated college, I found I needed to learn web development to fix the product we initially outsourced, and feel in love with development after that. I have been on both the business and technology sides of startup businesses, and now I am pushing hard to start my own company.

I work as a LAMP developer by day and go to as many classes and networking events as I can nights and weekends.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I have been on both the business and tech sides of several web companies, including a well-funded NYC startup (Yext), my own ecommerce marketplace, and several smaller projects. I have solid technical and social skills, a figure-it-out attitude, and an extremely strong drive to make something happen in a big way.
