Bio

CEO and founder of Pingboard, the modern company directory. Serial entrepreneur, director at Capital Factory and an investor in a bunch of really cool companies.

Previously, CTO and founder of Webmail.us, where we grew it to $8M with 72,000 SMB customers and an amazing team of 65 employees. Sold the business to Rackspace in 2007, then did partnerships and M&A at Rackspace.

Prior to all this, launched a couple of startup projects that failed, but ultimately pivoted into Webmail.us. And going WAY back, I was born into an entrepreneurial family and started working for my parents printing company at age 7 stuffing envelopes for 3 cents each. I worked their until heading off to Virginia Tech, but not before digitizing our pre-press operating, bringing it from camera & film to Mac + film printer in 1995 before Apple was cool and before people knew you could print anything but paper.
