What I Do

I live to bring big ideas from concept to market.

I do deep-dives to elicit requirements, rapidly conceive usability driven products, and bring the results to life.

With hundreds of projects and campaigns behind my belt, my passion is to solve user problems with a “wow”.


In my last job at National Geographic, I launched the online communities for National Geographic, NatGeo Channel, and NatGeo Kids. As well as dozens of high-profile technology and media projects.

While working on Capitol Hill, I ran the tech and online systems for over 50 high-profile political campaigns in the 2006 campaign season using all open-source software. As well as launched the first ever (failed) MMORG political canvasing campaign in Second Life.

Prior to that I ran a web strategy company that grew to 20+ people.

Some other accomplishments include a month hiking the Appalachian Trail, getting trained in desert-survival, and saving my parents from a freak hurricane while skipper of a sail boat for their 30th wedding anniversary.

What I'm Looking For

I am looking for people that are dying to create world-changing projects. I know this sounds like a cliche, but that's what it's all about.

Right now, we are launching the first real-time market for international video journalism. If this strikes a nerve, drop me a line.
