Key Accomplishments

Over the past 6 years, I have worked in the mobile space. I have worked with major brands including: ESPN, NFL, Sprint, NASCAR, Oprah, Activision, etc. to help build their mobile strategies and products. Prior to my stint in mobile I worked in internet access services space at Excite@home and Covad.

An important and formative experience was my 5+ years at Coinstar. I was the 3rd employee and watched the company transition from Angel to VC and eventually to its IPO. It was an incredible experience and gave me a great appreciation for what it takes to make a company successful. It was during this period that I got the bug to eventually start my own company. This past summer I decided to take the leap and start a company with my partner. It has been a fantastic experience and I have loved each of the steps thus far.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

A few of the high points might include:
1) I love what I do and am passionate about the mobile space.
2) I have worked in the mobile space for 6+ years and have a pretty good handle on the types of apps and content that resonate with users.
3) I have been fortunate to meet a number of VC and Angel investors over the past few months and have a clear idea of what we need to do to raise our next round.
4) I was part of a company from the ground floor (3rd employee at Coinstar) through their IPO. As such, I know what it takes.
5) While I love to work, I also enjoy having a good time and keeping things in perspective.
