Chris is one of the most intelligent business leaders I have ever met. When he approached me to invest in Apartment List in 2008, I viewed the product as value add. However, it was a bet on the person that made me right the check. All you can ask for in a leader is someone who is diligent & thought provoking. Chris is all of those things and more.
I dabble in UX and product, but my primary strengths are strategy, business development and user acquisition.

I lead product on ApartmentList.com, the 2012 People's Voice Webby Award winner for Real Estate. I helped grow the site to 1.2m monthly users in under 15 months, making it the fastest growing apartment discovery engine ever. Apartment List's value proposition is simple: the web's most comprehensive selection of rental listings, searchable on an elegant map-based interface.
Meanwhile, I've co-bootstrapped a profitable startup from concept to 8-figure annual revenues and >35 employees with just $1 million of capital.
