Johnny Hugel
We worked together  •  Producer, Mobelux and Co-Founder/Executive Director, Feast RVA.
Garrett is a rare breed of a critical thinker with a creative mind. He approaches problems from multiple perspectives, and can see the vario ... us components that need to be addressed, beyond the standard technical or simple design that most gravitate towards. He successfully manages teams large and small through the various stages of solving complicated issues, and has a proven successful track record in shipping successful products with high efficiency. He brings an empathetic perspective to all projects and guides solutions to ones that the user will benefit from, rather than simply designing or building something that has visual appeal, but little tangible benefit.

He understand ... s the industry, placing a great deal of emphasis upon dignity and integrity. (Both of which will never be out of favor.) He understands web, mobile, and identity development. And he knows how to deliver on a schedule, whilst also providing a great deal of help and support.

Marti Beller
We worked together  •  Founder/CEO, PlanG. Previously President, Affinion Loyalty Group.
Garrett bootstrapped a services company that became well known for the clients they served. The desire to create products they owned and co ... uld take through the entire lifecycle is a struggle many entrepreneurs face with service businesses. Garrett would make a great advisor because he is not servicing his own ego. He wants to help others and he wants the help he receives. Sounds intuitive, but for many it is not. I think Garrett would make a great advisor on Founder Dating.
