I’m the founder and creator of My Dad Reads to Me. I’m building the company using lean methodology. I’m currently building my technical and literary team.
My Dad Reads to Me is a web and mobile portal which allows parents and children to interact regardless to time zone or distance. The portal allows parents access to a unique digital library of children’s stories. A parent can record a video of themselves reading the books, which is synchronized to the story and stored in the cloud. The child can see the book and video anywhere they have internet access, and maybe a bit of help from the other parent. Parents, who travel miss out on some of the simple things like reading books to their young kids. My Dad Reads to Me keeps kids and traveling parents connected by filling the gap between direct video communications and missing out completely.
US Army 94-06.
My goal for joining is to have a group of contemporaries who are trying to build something new, to discuss new ideas and strategies, but most importantly will tell me when they think I’m wrong. One of my biggest challenges has been finding other like minded people to work with and trust. I’ve found that veterans, no matter the service, have a fairly common baseline of understanding and are easy to work with.
