I’m a tech entrepreneur who is obsessed with crafting and growing beautiful products that delight customers and win markets. I’ve designed, marketed, and managed B2B and B2C products around web, mobile, and API platforms. My last company, Eventjoy, raised venture capital from investors such as Y Combinator and was later acquired by Ticketmaster, the world’s largest ticketing company.
My secret sauce is the ability to listen to customers on the ground level while still having a 10,000 ft view of the market. This helps me design and position products through compelling user experiences and stories in the fastest way possible. Nearly all of the products I've worked on offer do-it-yourself (DIY) experiences that focus on empowering people to do great things easily. I also enjoy supporting other entrepreneurs with their endeavors through advising, investing, or being a sounding board.
Lately, I've been doing a deep dive -- researching, building, and investing -- into cryptoassets and blockchains. Areas I'm interested in include non-fungible assets/digital goods, utility focused products, infrastructure, and generally, how to make blockchain-powered experiences usable for mainstream consumers.
I've released two products in the space to date: CryptoGoods and Blocksignal. I'm also assisting other teams in the space around product, design, and marketing.
If you're doing interesting things in any of these areas, please drop me a note.
I actively ideate and develop new projects through Something People Want. Check it out to see additional products we've brought to market.
Mailjoy is a DIY tool that abstracts all of the complexities of direct mail and print into a delightfully simple, yet powerful experience. I designed and managed all aspects of the product experience and marketing. Mailjoy has powered campaigns for brands and organizations of all sizes, and remains one of the top direct mail apps in the US.
FOUNDER AND CEO
Eventjoy was a multi-platform DIY tool that made event organizing easy for creators and hassle-free for attendees. I designed and managed the web experience for event creators, iOS and Android apps for event attendees, and an API platform for developers. I raised venture capital from investors such as Y Combinator and led the company's acquisition to Ticketmaster. Eventjoy was merged into another Ticketmaster entity in 2015.
