I am the founder & CEO of (website hidden), a startup advisor, and a connector for the #VegasTech community.
I have been a community architect, community cultivator, product designer, social marketer, customer developer, and startup advisor for companies including 500Startups, LaunchRock, Zappos, UserVoice, and Seesmic.
While I have a technical background, I prefer to speak in gardening and architecture metaphors. I am inspired by storytelling, psychology, evangelism, architectural theory, social economics, game mechanics, cultural anthropology, compassion, and ants.
I was studying to become a missionary, but left that path because I grew tired of the business of religion. Now, I help businesses convert customers into communities of evangelists.
