Key Accomplishments

I boot-strapped and co-founded AdParlor (A facebook advertising optimization company). Went through many years of working 18 hours / day, 7 days / week. It was a super intense and rewarding experience. We grew the company to $100M in revenue and sold it to AdKnowledge in 2011. I was the CEO and ran the business side - but I also understand the tech side very well (studied Computer Science at University of Waterloo).

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Want to find someone who I can really get along with as we would be spending a lot of time together. I am really open to feedback and making important decisions together. Looking for someone who is super-dedicated and knows how to hustle and build quickly.
