I am a long time resident of DC, but travel a bit. Professionally I have been invoved with internet start ups in one way or another since the first internet bubble-bust.
I founded a pretty popular music podcast network called IndieFeed, and most recently a service called HugeFan. Figuring out my next project currently.
Love meeting people and connecting everyone, and this space is a part of this exciting hobby :)
So it's helpful to know who I am dealing with. It helps me to deliver on expectations and to assess a successful match. So, filling-out your profile plus information about your planned stay prioritizes your request above the others.
