(More Complete) Bio

I'm the founder of two tech companies: ShowClix and LaneSpotter. One was acquired. The other, not so much. I'm also one of the general partners of The Fund Midwest, a seed-stage venture fund investing in the next generation of tech founders.

Every Friday, I deliver a weekly newsletter focused on startup stuff, early-stage investing, no-code tech, and all things marketing. It's called Chirps. You should subscribe.

Before tech, I worked in the entertainment industry, doing stints at The Rosie O'Donnell Show in New York City and as a music publicist in Los Angeles.

The work I've done has been featured in NPR, CNN, Next City, Forbes, Outside Magazine, Billboard, Bicycling Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal.

I currently live in Pittsburgh, PA with my son Dylan, two dogs, two cats, and seven bikes (n+1).

I'm a big believer in saying yes.
