You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I've co-founded two funded companies as CEO and CTO.

I've built and launched beta products that gained 50k+ signups in a day without press.

I know what it's like to be in the startup trenches and how to stay focused on the daily tasks without losing site of the bigger picture.

Mostly, I just like to work with great people and delight customers with innovative products.
