About Me

I've been a serial entrepreneur since late high school, with my first serious venture being an online textbook marketplace.  Although that never gained traction, my passion for entrepreneurship only grew. 

My first success came in early 2007 with a boutique development shop I started and grew to a team of 10.  In late 2011 I took another stab at web startups with Hungerly, a marketing platform targeted at the exploding mobile food scene.  After receiving a lot of press, going through the 1492 accelerator program and landing a semifinalist placement in the innovation awards, I moved on to my current venture: Acclaimd.

Acclaimd is a product of a Startup Weekend that took place in Columbus in February 2012.  About 60 days after that event, we landed our initial funding through Founders Factory and went on to land funding through the TechAcceleration grant and the 10x accelerator program (a Global Accelerator Network member.)  We concluded 10x with a strong showcase day presentation, a live product launch and an impressive list of pilot customers.

With our pilot now concluded, we're wrapping up development on version 2 which we will take to market shortly.
