Male, 29 years old

I'm passionate about building startup communities. I co-founded Startup Genome, which aims to be the world's most accurate database of startup ecosystems. Through a network of local volunteer curators who care about their city's startup culture, we're tracking founders, startups, investors and community organizations in every city in the world, layering-in filters and visualizations to make the data accessible and useful for entrepreneurs of all types, and making all of it available for free. In my full-time role at Dwolla, I'm focused on user acquisition and marketing. Prior to Dwolla, I was the Director of Marketing at a NYC-based venture-backed startup called Kohort, where I owned online marketing, user feedback, consumer sales, customer service and community management. Prior to Kohort, I was the COO of Startup Weekend, a non-profit that hosts intense weekend-long events that challenge web developers, designers and marketers to build and launch new tech startups in under hours. Starting as a volunteer, I became COO and helped Startup Weekend build the operational infrastructure and volunteer training program needed to expand from events per year to nearly year in countries. I still volunteer at Startup Weekend as one of their most active global facilitators. In my free time I hang out with my wife (who's a Doctor and Captain in the Air Force) and my dog Truman (named after Truman State University where I met my wife).
