- EXECCEO, present
- Justin.tvPresident, present
I'm currently the founder of Justin.tv, the world's largest live video site. I'd list some impressive stats about the site, but they'd almost certainly when I forget to update them next week. Justin.tv is a venture backed, Y Combinator funded company based in San Francisco that was created by myself and my friends Emmett Shear, Kyle Vogt and Michael Seibel. Every day it is a pleasure to show up to work with such fine friends.
At Justin.tv I currently work day to day on Socialcam, which is the easiest and fastest way to share videos from your Android or iPhone. Our mission is to let everyone in the world share the moments they care about with their family and friends.
I am a part-time partner at Y Combinator.
Before Justin.tv, I founded Kiko, the world's first AJAX calendar. We sold this on eBay in 2006 for $258,100. Emmett and I started Kiko from our dorm rooms at Yale University in 2005, where I made many lifelong friends but retained almost nothing about Physics and Philosophy, which I studied.
I am an advisor to Founder's Den, a great coworking space for startups to work out of in SF.
I like thinking about ideas, entrepreneurship, business strategy and execution tactics, but at heart my favorite thing is to get out, get moving, and do stuff. I'm a pretty bad programmer, a decent web developer, and occasionally a great motivator. I love crazy ideas (Justin.tv started as a reality show featuring yours truly).
I also love helping people succeed, especially in startups and entrepreneurship. Part of what has gotten me to where I'm at has been the many successful entrepreneurs who have come before me. Let me know how I can help you.
