Key Accomplishments

My experiences with businesses date back to college when I started my own custom promotional items business. Eventually, I wound up ideating a very successful ecommerce company, Customink.com (>$100M in annual sales), as a digital version of that college business. And I've been involved meaningfully with 5 other companies since.

Flagg Street Capital was a value investment firm which I co-founded, after receiving seed funding from David Einhorn's Greenlight fund. And we grew that to $200M under management. Eventually, I wound up working for a much larger hedge fund (Highfields Capital), but that 5 year combined period was extremely beneficial in terms of learning about a multitude of investment styles, business models and operational realities.

More recently, I founded BuyWithMe.com which grew rapidly in the boom/bust cycle driven by Groupon and LivingSocial, and we sold out to Gilt Groupe after raising over $30M in VC funding.




How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Experience, lots of anecdotal insights, and perspective.
Network to capital and successful people in various industries.
Credibility, Energy and relevant skills such as finance/budgeting, HR/legal, corp dev/biz dev, sales, and leadership.
And I usually have a lot of ideas....
