I've been a Pittsburgh resident for most of my life, though I've lived in Boston and Seattle previously. Pittsburgh is, of course, synonymous with steel, stanley, and startups. I've spent most of my career working in startups. I'm interested in mind-to-market problems: from ideas to napkin sketches, rough prototypes to scalable systems, flying-below-the-radar to building brands. Despite the reputation of nerds as lone wolves, I enjoy meeting people and collaborating.
