Technology. Focused on hyperlocal concepts and enabling people's outside lives with technology.
Founder and Chairman @ AirRun Used to be the creative director for BringIt, Inc. who just got bought out by IGT.
To impress people. In doing so I hope to establish relationships with people that would die to work with me... assuming I'd love to work with them
I can provide my experience acquired through starting a business from the ground up by myself. I bootstrapped for what seemed like an eternity and was able to churn out a V1.0 product in that time... I believe that I could keep bootstrapping given the relationships I've established with Ora Interactive and Doejo.com (most importantly Phil Tadros) but 2MM won't hurt I guess.
I have the most obsessive personality I think god can provide. It helps and hurts. Quickly, socially I get fixated on one person I'm interested in and spend months of time getting over it. From a business standpoint, I can work 72 hours straight if I'm interested in what I'm doing. I work through "sleeping time" on a regular basis. This obsession also affects my outside interests. I recently started playing guitar, drums, and piano. I spend about 6 hours a day in total practicing and I do it all through video games that are finally at that point I always new they'd reach where they can actually teach you an instrument. Rocksmith, for example lets you plug your real guitar into your XBox and learn songs. I used to be able to practice for 30 minutes max. Now that I'm playing a game to practice, I play for endless hours and it shows. I can literally shred solos after 4 months of rigorous practice and I owe it all to an engaging game. Games are fun. Life should be too.
I founded AirRun, Inc. and am about to release two new versions of the app on both iPhone and web. Also just raised 2MM in private equity funding.
