I'm passionate about entrepreneurs and startups. I've been working with technology my entire life. My first paid programming gig was at age 12. I wrote a program on an Apple ][ Plus to calculate shipping tariffs for my great uncle. I made $50. I've been working with technology ever since, having recently launched my seventh startup.

In between startups, I've worked a variety of other jobs, including 9-1-1 Center Director, Paramedic, and Firefighter. Thanks to the success of my first startup, I was able to study at the University of Colorado at Boulder on and off for more than ten years, with coursework in Biology (MCD), Philosophy, Astrophysics, and Theatrical Design. 

I live in Boulder with my daughter, Zoey.
