I’m currently building an online retail store, which attempts to fix problems I learned about while managing retail accounts for Coffee Joulies.
Previously, I was employee #1 at Plancast, a social event platform company backed by some of Silicon Valley’s top investors and later sold to Active Network Inc. (NYSE: ACTV). Prior to joining Plancast I spent time at TechCrunch doing anything and everything as we worked out of Michael Arrington’s house. Along the way I’ve also helped run Startup2Startup, launch Highlight, coordinate TechCrunch50, and provide marketing consulting for Mint.com out of my college dorm room.
I went to college at Grand Valley, where I co-founded a student organization focused on real estate. Combined, the group’s members owned 35 houses when I graduated 3 years later. I also somehow managed win the business school’s top award.
