I’m an entrepreneur currently piecing together a new company. My previous focus was MediaPiston, a content crowdsourcing marketplace which I bootstrapped to cashflow positive and sold to oDesk Corporation in late 2011.
From 2008 to 2010 I ran technology, corp dev (and for a short time: human resources) as CTO of WhitePages, a top-40 consumer internet site in the US. WhitePages had acquired Snapvine, a mobile social media startup backed by Draper Fisher Jurvetson and First Round Capital that I cofounded and served as CEO of from 2005.
I have a BS in Computer Science from the University of Washington and an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management.
I follow my dreams and stick with the smartest and most passionate people I can find. This simple strategy has worked so far.
