I still roll up my sleeves every day, mainly focused on growth, so I can talk high-level strategy and dive all the way into the weeds of what buttons to push and what copy to write. I was a self-taught software engineer so I lean heavily towards automating efficient sales and marketing.
As an early employee, I led growth for Bloomfire and Kissmetrics. Both successfully raised rounds of funding and were acquired.
As a solo founder, I built a million-dollar multichannel eCommerce company from scratch in 1 year.
As an investor, I acquired and sold multiple eCommerce and media companies.
As an advisor, I was the longest-tenured mentor for 500 Startups' flagship accelerator in Silicon Valley and advised hundreds of startups around the world.
