You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I started producing and curating web content in 1998 between powder days. This inspired the creation of GravityFed, one of the first online communities spreading awareness of "Eccentric Athletes & Mountain Culture" from Utah's Wasatch Mountains. From there I went on to manage the Backcountry.com affiliate program during a period of intense company growth. In 2005, compatible web marketing ideas with a colleague led to the development and launch of AvantLink, which is now an international performance marketing brand with dedicated networks in both Canada and Australia. I have an array of professional experiences online, but feel I am only scratching the surface. I still consider myself a publisher and branding expert, but now I am also a tech co-founder and curious entrepreneur.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Equal footing with mutual respect, collaboration and passion in the cause.

As an Advisor

Prefer in person collaboration and engagement but not necessary. I would describe my style as laid back but effective: confident, goal oriented, thorough, passionate. I get a long with all kinds of people, pay attention to the details and thrive as a mentor.
