For work, the things I build are web based. Interesting
Because of my background, I'm able to work equally well in graphic
design, technology, product, marketing and business analytics. This makes me a happy generalist and someone who really enjoys cooking up my own
projects and working in early stage companies.
and mirrors and guinea
pig cages and picture frames, among other things.
, a social shopping site where you post the things that you want and your friends, neighbors and local merchants help you find them.
I also created the social exploration site TruthTruthLie.me
and run all operations for two life sharing websites: ParentShack.com
and a political news site: polurls.com
Prior to shoving off on my own, I was the VP of Product
Development and Technology for BuyerZone.com
, an online B2B lead
generation service that was acquired
in 2007 by Reed Elsevier (BOOYA!). Before
that I was the Director of Advanced Product Development at Lycos.com
, co-founder of 2d Interactive
, a new media company, and a
researcher at Harvard University
and the Federal Reserve Bank
I'm proud to have grown up in St. Johnsbury
, Vermont - the jewel of
the Northeast Kingdom. I have a BA in Economics with concentrations in Mathematics and Fine Arts from Boston College
(interesting fact: there are more people at BC than in my hometown) and
a Masters in Architecture from Harvard University.
investing 3.5 years, countless all-nighters and 100% of my heart and
soul earning an architecture degree, I have never worked in an
architecture office. I like to think that it's helped me with my product
development and project management, though.
I enjoy music
(singer/songwriters like Damien Rice, Brett Dennen, Sufjan Stevens, The
Decemberists, Jack Johnson, Ben Folds, Nick Drake and so many more) and I
long to be a better guitarist. I really enjoy making my two
daughters laugh, playing fetch with my Havanese puppy
and going to dark,
smokey pubs and tossing back a pint of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
with my wife
(same person, I promise ;)
days that I'm burned out from looking at my three LCDs, I dabble in
, plucking crabgrass from my yard and various
home improvement projects.
I do not enjoy winter, cooking or
waking up early. My most guilty pleasure is Miley Cyrus' "Party In The
", I hate myself for liking that song...
