What I Do

I dabble in UX and product, but my primary strengths are strategy, business development and user acquisition.


I lead product on, 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.
