“Everybody on the team has kind of rallied around this idea that we’re making money, we’re helping companies. And we love helping companies. But even better than that, we can take that money and actually invest it back into the community.”
I am a serial entrepreneur, and a Google Developer Expert, who loves to build companies and communities. As a co-founder of This Dot Media and This Dot Labs, I have a deep passion for coding, especially with Angular, React, and Ember.
After selling my company, Dishcrawl, to DinnerLab in late 2015, I’ve been advising and mentoring startups on sales, marketing, and growth. During my tenure at Dishcrawl, I helped scale the company into 250 cities, with over 180 employees and partners across the world.
I have sat on several non-profit boards, including SV Creates, Hacker Dojo, and Silicon Valley Young Professionals.
I have also helped build 12 companies, and obtained degrees in business and marketing, over the past 14 years. In this time, I have developed a strong interest in building enterprises from the ground up, social media marketing, and growth hacking for companies at various stages.
In my free time, I love to give talks on my technical adventures at global web development conferences, and enjoy pair coding with friends.
