I'm an entrepreneur, angel investor and advisor. I mostly work on product (design & development). But I hustle on marketing/sales when I need to. Outside of work, I can spit rhymes with a mic and drain buckets on a hoops floor. I also chase a few rugrats around the house.Describe what you have done, what you are doing, and the kinds of things you are interested in.
After dropping out of Princeton (computer science), I founded Zinch, an ed-tech company connecting students globally w/ opportunities in higher education. I helped Zinch grow to an international, 8-figure revenue-run-rate startup that served millions of students and 800+ colleges & universities worldwide. After six years, Zinch was acquired by Chegg (CHGG, NYSE) for $45mm.
I've spoken at various industry events including Techcrunch Disrupt, Mobile World Congress, Founders Forum, Gartner CIO Forum, InboxLove, TedX and others. I'm a mentor to various accelerators including Techstars, Ignite, and Barclays. My writing has been featured in many publications including Fortune Magazine & Techcrunch.
I was named to the v100 (Top tech entrepreneurs) and Top 40 business persons under 40 by Utah Business Magazine. I also enjoy philanthropy/charity -- currently on the Board of Effect.org.Describe the most impressive thing you've done.
